This is a three part activity, originally designed as a file folder game. Students will start out by sorting 20 cards into 2 stockings: Action Verbs or Linking Verbs. They will read the card, identify the verb, and then place the card on the appropriate stocking.
After they have sorted the cards, they have a chart to fill in with the list of action verbs and the list of linking verbs.
Once this is complete OR as a seperate assessment component, students will complete an action and linking verb worksheet. For this assignment, students will identify the verb and circle whether it is an action or linking verb. At the bottom, students are given 5 verbs, (some action and some linking). They must construct their own sentences using one verb in each sentence.
