Product Description


8th GRADE GRAMMAR COMMON CORE: VERBALS UNIT:

A 50-page packet that helps you introduce the Verbals unit, provide practice, and assess student knowledge upon completion of the unit.

Common Core Standard: (CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.L.8.1.A)

INCLUDED IN THE PACKET:

1) CLOZE TEST:

This is an activity to help introduce gerunds, infinitives, and participles.

A Cloze Test measures a student’s prior knowledge by asking the student to fill in the missing words that have been removed from a passage.

Once they have taken the cloze test, you will give the students the correct terminology so they may use the handout as a guide for review

(TIP: always fun to make it a COMPETITION! Whoever gets the most correct gets candy, 5 points on exam, etc).

2) DEFINITION AND PRACTICE WORKSHEETS:

Handouts with the definition and examples of Gerunds and Participles. (A definition for Infinitives is included in the first page of practice worksheets) All are color-coded to help with visual learning.

4-5 Practice Worksheets for each Verbal. The worksheets offer practice by determining the specific usage of the verbal through context, creating sentences, identifying phrases, and using the verbal for certain parts of speech.


3) UNIT EXAM:

30-Question Unit exam for student comprehension with Verbals (Gerunds, Infinitives, and Participles).

The first portion of the exam asks students to identify the verbals within the given sentences through tasks such as indicating where the verbal is within the sentence, and how the verbal is functioning (as an adjective, verb, etc.).

The last section of the exam asks students to identify the verbals within a paragraph (in context) and indicate if the verbal is a gerund, infinitive, or participle. The writing portion requires the same, but they are to create their own paragraph. This last section can be optional depending on your preference.

Easy-to-grade answer keys for all products are always included.
