Product Description
This story is meant to be used as a way to introduce a mini-lesson focusing on grammar*. The specific target of this lesson is on the verbs “was” and “were.” Students often have trouble with copular verbs, especially in the past tense form. Use this story to highlight the language targets, emphasizing the words “was” and “were.” After reading the story, you will provide instruction in how to properly use these verbs using a variety of activities of your own choice. It is important to teach the rule (e.g. With one subject we use “was.” With multiple subjects we use “were.”) After sufficient teaching and practice, this story can be re-read to assess generalization. Have the student answer the questions at the end of each page to determine if they have picked up on the grammar rule. I have included wordless pictures at the end as well. Have the student practice using the language target during a story generation task. This activity could also be used to highlight subjective pronouns (i.e., he, she, they). Feel free to be creative and use this activity in a way that best serves your needs.

*The concept of mini-lessons is adapted from the work of Sarita L. Eisenberg.
Eisenberg, S.L. (2007). Grammar: How can I say that better? In Ukrainetz, T. A. (Ed). Contextualized language intervention: Scaffolding prek-12 literacy achievement. (145-194). Pro-Ed, Inc.: Austin, TX.
