Introduce your students to gerunds and their functions with this instructional PowerPoint. This is part of our unit that we use to dig deeper into verbals.
This PowerPoint will walk your students through the world of gerunds. We begin with basic gerund and then progress to gerund phrases and detail the functions of gerunds in sentences, (subject, subject complements, direct objects, indirect objects, and objects of the preposition)
Included are 33 slides that incorporate guided and independent practice to help your students achieve mastery. We have also included a student note page that follows the PowerPoint and allows the students to participate in the activity by practicing on a printed version.
The PowerPoint includes a large amount of animation, so it is recommended that you view it fully before showing students.
