Grammar with Boys

Unschool grammar with boys-

Me: A verb is an action word, like thinking, running, being...

Josh (9y): And pooping or peeing? 

Me: Yeah, those are verbs. An adverb describes the verb. So thinking deeply, or running quickly.

Josh: Or tooting loudly? Pooping messily?

Me: Yeah, I think you've got it.

Josh: What about pooping very messily? Is very an adverb too?

Me: In that case, yes.
