This is a great resource to review or refresh your students' knowledge of verbs, either at the beginning of the school year or with small groups as you see the need. This packet includes a note page for students to list examples of verbs, 4 worksheets (actions verbs, linking verbs, helping verbs, and verb tenses), and a quiz over all topics. Answer keys are included.
At the end, there is a project by which you can assess your students' understanding and use of verbs in authentic writing. For the project, students will write their own original poem in the style of Carl Sandburg's "Jazz Fantasia" and perform/publish it using a voice recording system such as Voice Thread. For assessment, there is a rubric to assess the poems and a rubric to assess technology skills.
These can add to your students' ability to include appropriate verbs in their writing in a grammatically correct format. Check out my store, The Literacy Lounge, for resources for these other parts of speech:
