It’s a beautiful but chilly day here in southwestern Vermont, so I’m staying a few minutes after school to publish a few more items here. I didn’t get much done (including a Weekly Text) last week on account of the holiday.
So here is a complete lesson plan on linking verbs. Because sentences with predicate adjectives are one of the most commonly used structures in both English prose and speech, I teach them several times in the course of the parts of speech unit I wrote several years ago (and continue to revise).
Anyway, here is the Cultural Literacy worksheet on intransitive verbs with which I open this lesson after a class break. This scaffolded worksheet on linking verbs is at the center of this lesson. Finally, here is a learning support on the verb to be to help students conjugate this often confusing verb.
