Grammar Crash Course Day 3: Verbals

Today we explored the world of verbals.  The students learned my Grammy Award-winning song “I’m Every Sentence Part” which was set to the tune of “I’m Every Woman” by Whitney Houston (okay, so I am joking about the Grammy part).  This song, used to teach the students about gerunds, presented them with a challenge: if I hear back from either the school principal or the 8th grade assistant principal that they were taught the song, ALL of my students will receive a surprise.  Let’s see what happens!

Thereafter, we talked about infinitives using the words of the immortal philosopher Buzzeus Lightyeareus who said “TO INFINITIVE AND BEYOND!”
