Use this analogous scenario to teach your students about action, linking, and helping verbs. The teaching slides (10/15) include an audio recording, so you can take a break from talking! (Of course, you can omit the audio if you wish.) Students will be engaged as they listen to the analogy that compares verbs to a simple action, riding a bike. This comparison is easy to remember, so your students will solidify and retain their knowledge of verbs. This presentation also includes transitive and intransitive verbs.
There are four slides with 22 practice sentences; answers are included. After this presentation, students will be ready to analyze verbs in their own work.
