- Form a circle with the entire group, facing the center. Make sure the group is clear about what an adverb is. It’s “how” something is done.
- Select one person to be ‘it’. That person leaves the room while the rest select a single adjective. This can be randomly made up or selected from a jar or hat. Example adjectives might be “Slowly”, “Nervously” or “Sleepily.”
- Once all participants understand the adjective, the person who is ‘it’ is invited back into the room and stands in the center of the circle.
- One by one, the person who is ‘it’ points to a person in the circle and asks them to do an activity. Examples might be putting on a jacket or reading a book.
- The chosen participant mimes this activity in the manner that the adjective describes. For example, the book will be read ‘slowly’ or the jacket will be put on ‘nervously.’
- This continues until the person who is it can guess the adjective.
Have all participants form a circle, facing the center. Use a small, soft beanbag or stuffed toy to throw to a member
