Challenge 4: Often Confused Adjectives and Adverbs

Good/well
Good (adjective): I did a good job.
Well (adverb): I did well on that test.
Well (adjective): I had a cold, but I am finally feeling well.
Bad/badly
Bad (adjective): I have a bad reaction to corn.
Badly (adverb): We played badly in last night's soccer game.
Real/really
Real (adjective - opposite of imaginary): A real ladybug flew onto my paper.
Really (adverb - means very): My picture of a ladybug looked really good.
Hint:
If you can substitute the word very, really is the correct choice.

Challenge 5: Adjectives with countable/not countable nouns

Be careful with using adjectives with countable and non-countable nouns.

You can count: books, dollars, cups, etc.
You cannot count: information, money, sugar, etc.

Therefore you might have many books, dollars, and cups, but you would have much information, money, and sugar.

Countable - (a large number) Non-Countable - (a large amount)
many, more, most, few, fewer, fewest, several much, more, most, little, less, least, some
