• 13 Action Verb Worksheets

    $3.99

    Actions verbs are a mainstay of every language teachers curriculum. They are great to teach and children really benefit from being taught them using varied activities. However, one of those activities we use to consolidate or cool them down after all the actions, is the humble worksheet.

    Children need to learn a mixture of grammar and phonics to learn to talk. Verbs, and in particular Action Verbs, are incredibly important part of this. The ability to be able to communicate their actions and what they want or have been doing is a huge motivator for younger learners. As they start to form sentences they will naturally acquire vocabulary, there are ways to develop these skills more effectively.

There are editable versions on the store if you wanted to increase the difficultly for your particular students.

    T

    I love teaching children about dinosaurs, I have books and fossils to show them and their enthusiasm rubs off on me. There is something about these huge animals that just captures imagination of children.

    So i have put together these reading cards with 12 of the most popular dinosaurs on theme. Each has some information and then 5 comprehension questions and a coloring box with the dinosaur in it (I will make the coloring images bigger for download in a short while in case you need)


    Reading comprehension is both difficult and essential for younger learners. Half the battle is getting them motivated on a topic to be willing as well as able to try to use reading strategies. These cards will help. You can add additional questions as you wish.

    Here there are 4 examples and in the premium set we have 12 for you. which should be enough to cover any of your students favorite dinosaur!!

    On these reading comprehension cards we have the following dinosaurs

    • Tyrannosaurus Rex
    • Dinosaur Days
    • Diplodocus
    • Brachiosaurus
    • Parasaurolophus
    • Pterodactyl
    • Spinosaurus
    • Stegosaurus
    • Triceratops
    • Velociraptor
    • Giganotosaurus
    • Plesiosaurus

    There is plenty of information for Children on dinosaurs online, however there seems to much less for early or ESL readers. That’s why we have designed these. They should be more suitable for beginning readers of English.
