HelpingWithVerbs.com helps students improve their writing through the correct use of verbs in sentences.
There are six main lessons each with a series of worksheets that can be worked through by students. These provide lots of examples and opportunities for practice through extensive and varied exercises. The lessons teach students how to use verbs in their everyday writing.
Each worksheet is packed with information on historical events, the natural world and/or legendary people; therefore, not only will students develop their written communication skills, but they will also learn about the world around them. This takes the focus away from the grueling grammatical exercises and puts the focus on the information.
