Sparking Student Motivation: Angry VERBS!

Happy Saturday, friends!
I'm joining my friend, Joanne, from "Head Over Heels for Teaching," for her "Spark Student Motivation Saturdays" linky:
If you want a way to capture your students attention during grammar(and keep it!), this is it...
*These are my most popular TpT items* 
I have two Angry Verbs packets - 
Angry Verbs Part 1 deals with action verbs vs linking verbs and includes a scavenger hunt, a bulletin board activity, and a creative writing prompt.
Then we put our verb knowledge into practice with a fun writing activity:
The students were told that a band of Angry Birds had been let loose and it was their job to catch them! 
This student planned a creative story about two Angry Birds who stole sombreros, hid in the Space needle, and escaped to Mexico until being caught and sent to jail :)
This student took a more magical spin on the assignment:
Then we wrote our final drafts:
 Angry Verbs Unit 2 includes two center (or whole-group) activities:
1. Sorting Angry Verbs vs. Not-an-Angry-Verb
2. "In-Tense" Sorting Tensed Angry Verbs (past, present, and future)
Both games come with playing cards, a sorting mat, a student tracking chart, and an answer key
You can buy both of these activity packets in my
Angry Verb Bundle!

I have a little FREEBIE for you! 
Here's a fun graphic organizer that can be used to engage your students and give them valuable practice writing and identifying the different types of verbs:


  1. So cute and clever! Last year's sixth grade was into Angry Birds BIG TIME! I purchased your first pack to use with them and they LOVED it! Love your additional material.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. This would be great to do during the week of the Hour of Code since the students will be learning how to use code to make Angry Birds move in a game. It would tie together nicely for an Angry Birds fun-filled week. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Your bulletin board looks great and such wonderful writing from your students! Isn't it funny how you can add a theme to a skill and it suddenly becomes exciting and motivating? I bet your kids appreciate your creativity! Thanks for sharing and linking up!
