Linking verbs can be difficult for students to master because they are the verbs that do not show action.
Using these materials, students first review general notes and information about linking verbs and review some linking verb samples. Students work with "being" verbs as an introduction to the linking verb. Then, students practice finding linking verbs with a helping verb attached. Next, students practice finding verbs that can change from action to linking and recognizing the different application of the “switch hitter” linking verbs. Finally, students complete a short writing activity using linking verbs in sentences to describe a person/animal.
