Students will need a different coloured pen each. Give each pair of students a copy of the first game board.

Students then take it in turns to choose an adverb of manner from the board. They must then think of a verb that fits with the adverb of manner and say a sentence using the two words.

If the student did so correctly, they win the square and write their verb under the adverb of manner with their coloured pen. Tell the students that they must use a different verb for each square.

Students must try to get four squares in a row, either horizontally, vertically or diagonally.

When a student has four squares in a row, check their answers. If the verbs match with the adverbs of manner, the student wins the game. However, if any of their answers are incorrect, play continues. If neither student got four in a row, the student with the most squares win the game.

Finally, time permitting, give the students a copy of the other game board, in order to practice these new adverbs of manner.
