Answer Key

Linking Verbs

Using technology and collaborative learning, this linking verbs lesson plan appeals to multiple skill levels and intelligences. Learners complete online quizzes with automatic feedback (do twice to measure improvement), and differentiate between action and linking verbs. They learn a linking verb song, and each hold up a linking verb poster when they hear their word sung. The song lyrics are not included. They act out sentences and finally use a linked program to animate what they've learned.

Action Verbs: ESL Lesson 1

Verbs are so exciting, especially action verbs! Jump into action and get your ESL class fluent in using and identifying verbs in sentences. They participate in three different activities that will help them define what action verbs are, how to locate them in sentence, and how to use them correctly. Two of the activities are actually games that could potentially be used to teach other parts of speech.

Linking Verbs: To Be or Not To Be

In this linking verbs instructional activity, students read about the proper usage of the verb to be. They underline the verb, to be, in 5 sentences, write the eight words that form the verb, and fill in the blank with the proper verb form in 6 sentences.


In this action verb worksheet, students fill in the blanks to sentences with an action verb. Students fill in the blanks to 10 sentences with action verbs.

Phrasal Verbs with Get

Students identify ten phrasal verbs with "get". In this phrasal verbs lesson, students read and analyze a conversation between two people. Students interpret the meaning of the phrases in the diaglogue. Games and additional activities are suggested.

When is a Noun a Verb? Examining Double Duty Words 

Act and act, address and address...there are so many words in our dictionary that can function as nouns or verbs. Start this lesson by having your class list as many as they possibly can. When an adequate list presents itself, have your class members write sentences with a couple of them, using them as both a verb and a noun. From here, kids can read the attached article about Google, answering the five presented questions, or complete some of the activities detailed. A superb language study. 

Sense, Sensibility and Sentences: Examining and Writing Memorable Lines 

What makes a great sentence? As readers comb different texts (books, articles, the Internet), have them search for sentences that appeal to them. On the first day of the lesson, have class members post one or two of their favorites on the board. Then, start a discussion with your class; What makes these sentences work? There's an article attached that might help your class understand sentences in a new light. 

Sense, Sensibility and Sentences: Examining and Writing Memorable Lines

Involve your readers in finding works of literary genius. Have each individual write down compelling sentences that they read or hear, whether in a newspaper, advertisement, book, movie, song, or any other place! Once each person has a collection of sentences, he or she will write one or two on the board. Following discussion questions posed, learners gather in groups, paraphrase some sentences, and analyze the differences. Articles and extension opportunities complete this excellent activity.
