Free creative teaching resource – verbs in sentences

Challenge your pupils to write complete sentences of just two words!

It will soon become apparent that a verb is essential. The worksheet gives examples such as ‘Dogs dribble’. Pupils are then asked to write four sentences of only two words and four sentences of three words. The activity can be extended by asking them to highlight the verbs.

This activity is drawn from How to Dazzle at Grammar – which gives pupils the tools to be able to talk about and understand language development and grammar. The activities help students to deconstruct and fragment language and learn how it ‘works’ in an analytical way, and through this process, how to improve their own use of language.

How to Dazzle at Grammar is also available as an ebook download (pdf format), just choose the ebook rather than hardcopy option on the book page of our website.

Our payments system is linked with PayPal but you DO NOT need a PayPal account to purchase from our siite. When you go into the payment screen if you have a PayPal account you login on the right hand side. Otherwise, on the left, above the symbols for the credit cards, there is a sentence asking you to press continue if you do not have a PayPal account, you can then just enter your credit card details as usual.

We are currently working on making the payment pages clearer to avoid this confusion.
