I just found this site and I am very impressed. As a general education teacher for Kindergarten and a Special Education teacher for a 3rd grade inclusion class, I know I will be referring to this website again and again. I wonder if there are worksheets to reinforce being verbs, action verbs and helping verbs in the predicate that could be used effectively with my special education students.
Thank you.
