PCC Challenge #2 - "Lolly"pops





"Lolly Lolly Lolly, get your adverbs here.
Got a lot of lolly, jolly adverbs here.
Anything you need and we can make it absolutely clear

An adverb is a word
(That's all it is! and there's a lot of them)
That modifies a verb,
(Sometimes a verb and sometimes)
It modifies an adjective, or else another adverb
And so you see that it's positively, very, very, necessary.

Lolly, Lolly, Lolly, get your adverbs here.
Father, son, and Lolly selling adverbs here.
Got a lot of adverbs, and we make it clear,
So come to Lolly! (Lolly, Lolly, Lolly)"


I absolutely LOVE Schoolhouse Rock. Learning through songs and rhyming was the only way I could memorize anything growing up, so this show was perfect for me.

There are so many great shorts like: Conjunction Junction, Interjections!, Interplanet Janet, and I'm Just a Bill to name a few. I always favored the Grammar Rock shorts to the other Schoolhouse Rock editions, especially Multiplication Rock, so choosing "Lolly, Lolly, Lolly Get Your Adverbs Here" as inspiration for my craft was a no-brainer.

I decided to make my craft very simple, so here are my felt "Lolly"pops:




Did you notice they actually spell out an adverb too! I enjoyed making them so much that I made a few other lolly words. They'll be available next week in the shop.

I hope you have fun with this challenge. I know I did!

  1. I had my English students teach some of the basic subject as review work towards the beginning of the year - we always ended up watching several schoolhouse rock episodes! I loved it of course. :)

    Love the lollies!
