Starter #1 Take out your comp book. Turn to the first blank page. In the upper right hand corner, write the following: Fri., Jan. 10, 2014 QW #32: Far Away What place is the farthest away from Lexington that you have traveled?

Lesson Goal: Learn about adverbs modifying adjectives and other adverbs. Outcomes: Be able to... 1.Define the term “adverb.” 2.State the three questions an adverb answers. 3.Indicate where adverbs usually appear when they modify an adjective or another adverb. 4.List the most commonly used adverbs that modify an adjective or another adverb. 5.Identify an adverb in any given sentence and indicate the adjective or adverb it modifies.
