Do you struggle with balancing your kids’ screen time with their education? Say hello to 1Question, the app that solves this problem with a fun twist!

Learning time​

Kids learn by watching short, engaging video lessons.

This lesson is all about adverbs. So, adverbs are often described as words that modify or add more information about verbs. For example, “I ran quickly,” or, “I tiptoed quietly.” But adverbs can also modify adjectives, other adverbs, and even whole clauses. Adverbs can describe the way or time which something was done. For example, “Earlier, I went to the shops,” or, “Forcefully, I opened the door.” Can you find the adverb in this sentence, “I went to the beach yesterday?” If you said, “Yesterday,” you were correct. Yesterday tells us the time something was done. Now try, “I carefully closed the window.” Yes, carefully was the adverb as it describes how the window was closed.
