Ready to see big changes in your students’ writing? Then teach them to use participial phrases. Quickly covering four or five different phrases at the same time may help students fill out a worksheet, but their writing will remain the same.

This product contains the following:

• A thirty-three slide Prezi with instruction and guided practice. This is available as a file you can save to your computer.

• Guided notes page for the Prezi and separate printout with guided practice from the Prezi.

• Teaching tips that include three follow-up activities

• “Ticket Out” activity

• Worksheet and answer key

• Five bell work assignments and answer key. Each one contains five questions reviewing participial phrases. The first bell work assignment is meant to be used BEFORE the class has covered participial phrases and serves as an “anticipatory set”

• A ten-question quiz and answer key

• Binder chart for students to track the participial phrases they use in their own writing

You can see the Prezi--minus most of the information--and several other documents in the preview file. If you haven’t used a Prezi in your classroom, I encourage you to give it a try. It is much more dynamic than PowerPoint and really keeps my students’ attention.

It helps if students understand the difference between phrases and clauses before focusing on participial phrases. You can access that lesson here: Phrase or Clause? What's the Difference? There is also an absolute phrase product in my store that is very similar to this one.

Will your students need a participial phrase review next semester or a few weeks from now? Check out my "The Wizard of Oz and the Participial Phrase" lesson. Students use sentences from L. Frank Baum's famous story as a model for their own participial phrase sentences.

Featured Standard:


Use various types of phrases (noun, verb, adjectival, adverbial, participial, prepositional, absolute) and clauses (independent, dependent; noun, relative, adverbial) to convey specific meanings and add variety and interest to writing or presentations.
