Wk. 7 – Adverbs that Modify Adjectives Worksheet

Adverbs That Modify Adjectives

Adverbs modify verbs. That’s easy to remember. Adverbs can also modify adjectives and other adverbs.

Example: That idea is simply ridiculous.

The word “simply” is an adverb that modifies the adjective “ridiculous.”

There is an adverb in each sentence that modifies an adjective. Underline the adverb and write the adjective that it modifies after the sentence. The first one is done for you. Some, but not all of the adjectives are made from verbs (participle adjectives).  There may be other adverbs, but we’re only looking for the adverbs that modify adjectives. 

1. We had a badly damaged house after the storm. damaged
2. That Christmas song is very beautiful.
3. A well written story is a pleasure to read.
4. The cruise ship was incredibly huge.
5. Sue’s eating spree gave her face a slightly greenish color.
6. You are too smart to do anything that dumb! (this one is tricky – there are two adverbs modifying adjectives)
7. Melissa proudly displayed her carefully painted portraits.
8. Any story that Mr. Chuckles tells is truly funny.
9. I find house cleaning to be a task that is somewhat enjoyable.
10. That attractive furniture that they sell is fairly sturdy.
