  1. I LOVE literature, especially children's literature. Like many of you, I could open my own children's library, I have so many books! I include literature in my lessons whenever possible, and will even use picture books with my adults (who all come by after class to tell me how much they enjoy them).

Description

Distinguishing between active and passive voice can be difficult for students. Converting between active voice and passive voice is even more difficult still. My students were having trouble distinguishing between active and passive voice, so I made these task cards for them to practice. To make it a little more fun I decided to write sentences about favorite Dr. Seuss characters.

Initially the students simply read the sentences and recorded active or passive on their recording sheet. After they became more proficient at distinguishing between active and passive, they worked on converting between the two. For that exercise I used the second recording sheet and they had to rewrite the sentences from active to passive voice, or vice versa. A Google Slides digital task cards version is available as well.

For more information about this, and related activities, see the blog post Children's Literature Based Activities for All Levels.
