Looking for a thorough way to explain action and linking verbs ... and how to tell the difference? This 40-slide movie-themed PowerPoint lesson
will guide your students to understand both action and linking verbs ... and how to tell when a linking verb is really an action verb.
This PowerPoint presentation includes three concepts:
~ action verbs
~ linking verbs
~ when a sensory linking verb is really an action verb.
The PowerPoint is divided into those three sections. You can treat each one as a mini-lesson or use it as one comprehensive verb lesson. "Intermission" slides will cue you when to stop if you decide to break it up into three smaller parts.
Each section contains the following:
~ Slides that define the concept (what an action verb is, what a linking verb is, and so on)
~ Slides that provide one to two detailed examples for you to discuss the definition.
~ Slides that contain a "ticket to understanding" -- a strategy that helps students locate and identify the verb on their own
~ Slides containing one more detailed example that you can use to demonstrate the use of the strategy
~ Slides containing additional practice sentences.
Check out to the preview to see additional samples.
