Please enjoy this free printable anchor chart or reference sheet
that explains the grammatical purpose of an infinitive.
I created this reference sheet because all too often while working with verb phrases or prepositional phrases, I found it necessary to teach students the role of infinitives so they were not confused by them in sentences.
This seemed especially helpful when teaching prepositional phrases, as the word to
can have so many different purposes.
What you receive in this PDF file:
~ An 8.5 x 11 version that contains two pages (front and back). This is the size that you'll want if you plan to copy this for students to place in folders or binders, or perhaps at a center or even to enlarge as a poster!
~ A resized version that can print two copies of the chart on a single 8.5 x 11 sheet, which makes it an ideal size for using with interactive notebooks. This version is meant to be cut apart and placed in a notebook.
