Product Description
This is a cooperative learning activity to reinforce an introductory lesson on linking verbs that are forms of "be". This whole group activity promotes the idea that a linking verb is the link between the subject and predicate noun or predicate adjective to form a correct sentence. There is a graphic that illustrates this. Also included are forms of "be" along with nouns and predicate nouns and adjectives in large, bold letters. These are to be printed on white copy paper and cut apart. Glue these words to strips of gold or yellow paper and laminate. In order for the words to resemble a chain round the paper and attach it to itself. Since I had only 8 1/2 x 11 paper available, I hole-punched each end and used pipe cleaners to round each link so that the class could still see the word(s). To begin, pass out all the words to the class. Have a student with a linking verb come to the front and hold the link so that the class can see the word. Have the linking verb student choose the next student with a subject for the sentence and stand in the correct spot next to the linking verb. That student then chooses a student that has a predicate noun or predicate adjective to stand on the other side of the linking verb to complete the sentence. Have students that are not part of the sentence verify that it is indeed a grammatically correct sentence. Repeat this process until all students have participated. You can also repeat the activity, if time. The activity is a great chance to build your classroom community while allowing the students to get up out of their seats and problem solve. Students love doing this activity!
