Spaced Out Adjectives and Adverbs -- Freebie

My students have a hard time distinguishing between adjectives and adverbs, so I made this game for some fun practice. Common Core standards require both second and third grade to work with adjectives and adverbs. 

Students divide into two teams -- aliens vs. spacemen. They keep the cards of any questions they answer correctly. If they draw a planet card, they lose all their cards.

Don't forget that I get "spaced out" over your comments, so please leave one!


  1. These look great! It reminds me of the game called BAM! that I found on the blogs a while ago. . . I love it and my kids love it more!
    Thanks for making this and sharing it too.

  2. What a great game! Thanks for sharing.

  3. This is a brilliant idea, my kiddos have a real tough time differentiating between adjectives and adverbs.

    I was wondering though if you could do a UK spelling version? I love all your games and ideas, but often I can't use the Language Arts activities because the spelling isn't the same as what we use (and my kiddos can hardly spell correctly to begin with - the definitely don't need to be further confused!)

  4. I always love to see the freebies you have created! So useful and cute:)

    We are ALL Special!

  5. Thank you- my kids have a hard time with that too!

  7. Another GREAT freebie! Thank you!

  8. Thank you again for another freebie you are sharing! I can't wait to get all of the games/activities I'm downloaded made and organized so I'm ready for next year! Thanks for your help with that! :)

  9. I am planning on using the Spaced Out Adjectives and Adverbs with my students. I also am hoping to use the one where they add the adverbs and adjectives to the basic sentence. They both sound fun.
