A few days ago, I posted the first lesson in a series of two on linking verbs. If you search the term “linking verbs.” Because of the way these kinds of words are used in the English language, as well as their commonality in everyday and academic speech and prose, I thought it necessary to make sure students master their use.
So, here is the second lesson plan on linking verbs. I open this lesson with this Cultural Literacy worksheet on the idiom “Burn the Midnight Oil.” Should the lesson go into a second day, here is a worksheet on the homophones you’re and your. This scaffolded worksheet is the mainstay of this lesson; the teacher’s copy will help you teach the lesson. Finally, here is a word bank that functions as a learning support to help students understand usage and syntax in writing sentences with linking verbs.
