Subjects and Verbs are easy to teach with this huge, no-prep bundle! Over 180 pages with complete lesson plans and answer keys.
PLEASE NOTE: THIS LESSON IS TAUGHT AFTER I TEACH THE BIG PREPOSTION BUNDLE.
The same packet is used for both lessons. I have included the sentences here, but know that students will be asked to remove prepositional phrases before finding the verbs. I have included one of the sheets in the preposition packet.
Here is a no-prep, everything you need bundle to teach students about verbs and their subjects. When teaching grammar, I teach the prepositional phrases first because once students “get them out of the way” it’s much easier to find the subject and verb.
This unit was made for my 8th grade students and has a spooky theme, but is fun any time of year. (It does have vampires and scary scenes, so maybe not appropriate for younger kids!) Here’s what you get:
• Teacher lesson plan overview and suggestions.
• Start by teaching your students a version of the Helping Verb Song. The one included here is only one version of several I’ve seen. I did not write this, and do not know where it originated. My students love to hate this song. Years later they come back saying they can’t forget it no matter how hard they try!
• An 84 slide presentation that introduces verbs, subjects and their use.
• Student Practice worksheet that follows the lesson presentation.
• A set of 40 task cards for student practice. This includes the answer sheet for students and the teacher answer key.
• An 82 slide presentation that includes the 40 task cards and their answers. This presentation can be used to correct student answers and for whole group practice, review and quiz game as described below.
• Whole group practice with a quiz style game. Have students work alone or in groups with white boards. Show the first slide and have students display their answers on their white boards. The next slide shows the correct answer.
• Finally, there is a short quiz to see if students have attained mastery. Answer key is included.
This has proved to be a fun lesson for my students.
