PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

These task cards, activities, and writing prompt will improve student writing. If your students' writing lack action verbs and instead linking verbs flood their papers, this activity is for them.

Students will practice changing linking verbs to action verbs with helpful tips. Included:
* Teacher guidelines and common core standards.
* 20 task cards with instructions to change the linking verbs in sentences to action verbs.
* Four printable note sheets with lists of linking verbs and "clues" to ease the change from linking verbs to action verbs.
* A paragraph with guided questions to directly show students how to rewrite sentences so linking verbs can become action verbs.
* A paragraph full of linking verbs for students to change to action verbs. This works great as a final assessment.
* A reflection prompt for students to internalize the lesson.

This is part of my "Improve Student Writing" series. These activities provide students with meaningful ways to change their writing.
