Frequency Adverbs: A Coloring Activity

Color it! Who says that coloring only appeals to kids? Not at all. Believe it or not, big guys in my class enjoyed doing it while trying to master their grammar lesson on adverbs of frequency. I was even surprised to see them working so peacefully that it’s as if they’ve been deprived from their art sessions years back. Anyhow, this creative task was inspired by my students who are mostly artistically-inclined. More obviously, this coloring activity was so popular to boys and girls alike whom I usually catch doodling, scribbling, sketching on their notebooks, worksheets, and worse is—vandalizing over their armchair for a reason that only their conscience knows. Howard Gardner’s claim about multiple intelligences (artistic) clearly explains this integrative method of teaching adverbs of frequency and its usage through coloring.
