Let this whiteboard "friendly" resource- help you with the job of teaching modal auxiliary verbs!
This presentation breaks down modal auxiliaries into the conditional categories of:
SKILL & ABILITY
The resource also includes examples of each category (plenty of them) as well as "Show What You Know" practice at the end to help engage the students as you assess their understanding of the skill.
This is a great way to introduce modal auxiliaries! It is also an excellent way to review the skill prior to spring testing.
The slides can also be printed and posted on a bulletin board as a student reference source.
A lot of potential here for a difficult concept--made easy!
