Helps kids learn how to learn linking verbs and practice with contractions. Good review for all ages, but in particular 2nd grade. Each Consult 4 Kids lesson plan is identified by grade level, lesson focus, and title. Materials you will need are listed—you will notice that we have tried to reduce the amount of paper and/or copies that you will need. The lesson itself has an opening (state the objective of the lesson and check to see what students already know), the lesson content (instruction/ demonstration, student practice, and taking advantage of “teaching moments); and the closing (review, debrief and reflections).
