Review of Adverbs with -ly

1. Use the suffix -ly to turn the following nouns, adjectives, and verbs into adverbs. Show the process that it takes to make each word. Sometimes you will have to add one suffix, sometimes more than one. Remember that you can often use -less and -ful to turn nouns into adjectives and that you can turns verbs into adjectives by adding -ed or -ing. Sometimes you may think of two adverbs that you can make from a stem word. If so, go ahead and make both of them. Just squeeze them in somewhere.
