A worksheet in the theme of The Gingerbread Man that explores the importance of verbs.

Very Important Verbs – Verbs Review Worksheet

Verbs are the backbone of every sentence. Yet, teachers across the country still struggle with getting students to retain their learning about this part of speech. Students need practice, visuals, and relevant materials to work with. That is where this worksheet comes in.

This worksheet has students working within the story of the Gingerbread Man. They will read and complete sentences from the story by adding relevant and correct verbs to each sentence. 

This worksheet comes in multiple forms for differentiation and modification. It is downloadable as a cloze activity with images, a non-cloze activity with images, and as a version that removes all images and can be geared toward older students. It is also available in Google Slides format.
