Learning linking verbs is difficult for young learners because of the large amount of linking verbs out there! How are students expected to remember each linking verb for their writing? How are they supposed to recall those verbs during an achievement test?
A song! Students should pick a song that they know well and has a short, rhythmic, tempo (Think of the Addams Family Theme song).
Create a list of linking verbs. It is best to go alphabetically and then move some words to fit the tempo of the song.
Greatest memory trick, especially for young learners!
