This slideshow helps to explain action verbs in a way that is fun and not too heavy by using entertaining examples and simple, straight-forward language. It does a great job explaining the difference between linking verbs, action verbs and helping verbs.
Some great powerpoints that are much more interesting than grammar workbooks and worksheets! This bundle includes a powerpoint (14 slides) and guided notes handouts (2 pages + 1 practice assignments page). The powerpoint includes a few "pop quiz" slides that allow you to assess students' understanding of the material right on the spot in a fun way. My students love this approach to grammar and we end up having a lot of fun with it! The Grammar Practice assignments are a real blast for the kids! This is powerpoint 3 in the grammar series.
