"YAY! IT'S TIME TO TEACH GERUNDS!!!"-- said NO teacher ever.
Not to fear, my fellow teachers: This is a packet of four worksheets for practice with gerunds. Each worksheet is color-coded and provides a clear definition and examples of gerunds/gerund phrases (also included is a "trick" to help the students find the gerund phrase--the gerunds didn't really "click" for my students until I came up with this "it" trick).
Also included is a FREE Verbals (gerunds, infinitives, participles) "Cloze" Activity (fill-in the blank) that can be used as a preview OR as a quiz! Once filled-in, your students can also use it as a rules cheat sheet.
