Good Morning Leaders.

In the sentences below, the adverb ‘slowly’ is used to describe how the man enters the room. Adverbs are like roving reporters – they can be moved around the sentence, e.g.
- The man went in, slowly
- Slowly, the man went in.
- The man went slowly in.
- The man slowly went in.

I’d like you to have a go at making a rain gauge and recording the daily rainfall. Remember to empty it daily or subtract the previous day’s results if you are leaving the water in.
