Generalization Read the story. Pick out the adverbs of manner and frequency. Use them in your own sentences. The Proud King There was once a king who ruled harshly over the lands. One night after he was crowned as emperor, he thought of himself as the greatest on earth and in heaven. He often went hunting. Early morning, while in the deep woods, he swam to cool himself in the lake. He proudly swam away from the shore. Suddenly there came from the bottom of the lake someone who had the same face and form as he. This man quickly put on the king’s clothes and drove away with the king’s horse. When the proud king finished cooling himself he found his clothes and his horse already gone. With some woven reeds covering his body, he walked to the castle. He beat loudly at the gate but he was driven away. He went to the duke’s hall but he was put to prison. Working hard, he loosened the chains that bound his feet and fled away. He went to his own palace but no one recognized him. Instead, he was beaten up and was thrown outside the palace. The proud king fled away. He wished he was dead. Reaching the lake where he had bathed, he cried aloud. He asked forgiveness for his pride. IV. Evaluation Write an adverb in the blank to make each sentence correct. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. V.
