Adverbs as Modifiers - 6th Grade Grammar

Remember!

An adverb modifies a verb, an adjective, or another adverb.
        He walked slowly

Adverbs can come before or after the verbs they modify. 

Adverbs can tell when, where, how, or to what extent
        Before the storm, the sky was unusually dark. How?
        The weather sirens indicated people should take cover immediately. When?
        The weather report indicated the storm was getting closer to our county. Where?
        Lightning began to flash and extremely loud thunder startled everyone. To what extent?

Many adverbs are formed by adding –ly to adjectives. However, not all words ending in –ly are adverbs, and some adverbs do not end in –ly.
        Yesterday our family excitedly moved to a new home. Now we can easily walk to school
        The alarm clock by Jonathan’s bed rang loudly.
        They talked excitedly about the day ahead.
        Jonathan dressed quickly and joined his family for breakfast. 
        Jonathan was especially eager to start the day.

When an adverb modifies an adjective or another adverb, it is often used for emphasis or intensity. Such adverbs are called intensifiers

Intensifiers such as very, just, quite, rather, so, too, and somewhat clarify the extent of something. Intensifiers are positions before words they modify.
        New York City is very busy with so many tourists visiting each day.
        Maura knows Alexandra quite well.
        They have been friends for a very long time.
        Alexandra lives just down the street from Maura.
        The girls walk to school together rather often.
