PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I think phrasal verbs are necessary for English language fluency. That said - they are both difficult to teach and to learn. Many teachers opt for introducing phrasal verbs in a laundry list style of putting the main verb with a slew of prepositions that create many different phrasal verbs. While this method may work for some students, the resounding feedback I get from my students is that it just confuses them more. Without context being provided, the phrasal verbs all sort of meld together in the brain causing the students to misuse them and interchange them incorrectly. To provide context, I often try to do some real-life associations that will help them to mentally attach the verb to the action.

But what about when this isn't practical in the classroom?

I stumbled upon a vintage illustration of a hectic scene in a supermarket and decided to break the picture down into 4 sections and attach a simple list of 10 phrasal verbs that has a corresponding visual association. While this wasn't an approach all students liked, I got positive feedback from others who liked both the visual example of the action and enjoyed finding alternate definitions and uses for the given phrasal verbs.

When teaching a foreign language, I count a method as a success when I get positive feedback from at least half of my students.

Students have success with what works for them ... the mission of the teacher is to introduce a number of methods and help them find what it is that works for them!

This is an 11-page informational workbook. A collection of four portions of the original illustration that includes each portion of the original illustration labelled with numbered circles and a corresponding list of 10 phrasal verbs, definitions and example sentences that go along with the numbered illustration. It also includes an informational sheet on the construction of phrasal verbs and a bonus worksheet for the students.

If you would prefer each section on its own, parts 1 through 4 are available for download in my shop. This is the more comprehensive product and contains the pages that comprise the individual sections, so this is the easiest download if you are interested in all parts.
