Educator Resources for 2.3.3 - Adverbs

Grandma's Birthday

Cousin Larry, who’s living in England, sends Ben a letter to say he’s sorry that he won’t be at grandmother’s birthday party on 9/3. Ben and Moby look at the date and realize they have to organize the birthday party very quickly. When everything is ready, they learn they didn’t have to work so quickly. Thanks to grandma’s birthday and Ben’s mistake, our ESL students learn about adverbs, the months and the English calendar.

Grammar Skills:
Adverbs that describe verbs
Adverbs that describe whole statements
Months of the year
