1. Singular vs Plural Nouns
In this singular and plural nouns worksheet, students have to make the plural form from singular nouns. For example, the plural of “balloon” is “balloons”. When there’s more than one, in this case, they add -s. Simple as that.
2. Common & Proper Nouns
In this common and proper nouns worksheet, students have to brainstorm types of proper nouns. For example, if the common noun is a mountain, they have to think of a proper noun like Mount Everest.
3. Collective Nouns
In this collective nouns worksheet, students have to fill in the blanks with words at bottom of the page. For example, words like “flock”, “herd” and “swarm” are collective nouns because they are names for a collection of things. In this case, “flock” is best suited with “birds” to make a “flock of birds”.
4. Countables vs Uncountables
In this plural nouns worksheet, we test students’ knowledge of countables and uncountables. For example, we can specify a count for countable nouns such as 5 carrots. But for uncountable nouns, we can’t assign a number like rice.
5. Irregular Plural Nouns
In this irregular plural nouns worksheet, students have to convert each singular noun to plural irregular nouns. For example, “men” is an irregular plural noun for “man”. But don’t underestimate the difficulty of this worksheet because there are some that even fluent English speakers may not know.
6. Possessive Nouns
Possessive nouns show ownership. For example, “the boy’s ball” shows that the ball belongs to the boy. In this grammar worksheet, can you create the possessive form?
7. Helping Verbs
In this helping verbs worksheet, students have to read each sentence carefully. Next, they have to circle the action verb and underline the helping verb.
8. Linking Verbs
Linking verbs do not show actions. Instead, they link a subject to a noun or adjective in a sentence. In this linking verbs worksheet, students have carefully read all 15 sentences and circle the linking verbs.
9. Transitive and Intransitive Verbs
Transitive verbs act on an object but intransitive verbs don’t relate to any objects. In this transitive and intransitive verbs worksheet, students have to write a “T” or “I” for transitive and intransitive verbs.
10. Adverbs of Frequency
Adverbs of frequency express “how often” something takes place or the occurrence that an event happens. In this adverb worksheet, you have to fill in the adverb of frequency that is true to yourself. For example, I always eat breakfast before I go to class.
11. Adverb Sentences
Can you identify the correct adverb to use in the sentence? For example: During the 100-meter sprint, Usain Bolt immediately / sluggishly dashes from the starting line.
12. Adjectives to Adverbs
This adverb quiz tests students’ ability to convert adjectives to adverbs. For example, you can take the adjective “calm” and make it an adverb by adding “-ly”.
13. Irregular Past Tense Verbs
First, students have to complete the sentence by conjugating the verb in the irregular past tense verbs worksheet. At the end of each sentence, it has the verb they have to use. After completing this, they have to match each sentence with the image below.
14. Daily Routines: Present Tense
First, put students in pairs. Next, they review each of the daily routine examples in the worksheet. Using the present verb tense, they ask each other what their daily routines are? For example, do they wash their hands every day? Can they think of other daily routines they have?
15. Comparative Adjectives
In this comparatives adjectives story, students have to fill in the blanks with the words at the bottom of the story. Which comparative adjective should go into each blank? After students finish the story, they can practice reading it aloud.
16. Opposite Words
In this opposite for kids worksheet, students have to find the 2 opposites in each group of 3. After they find the opposites, they have to circle them.
17. Superlative Adjectives
In this superlative adjectives worksheet, we explore the world of superlative adjectives. What is the coldest, driest, fastest, closest, or anything that is the most of something? Students fill in the crossword puzzle with superlative adjectives.
18. Comparative Adjectives
Comparative adjectives contrast differences (bigger, faster, higher, etc) between two or several people, places, or things. In this comparative adjectives worksheet, students write sentences for each image. In addition, they have to use the words in each image to create sentences.
19. Compound Words
In this compound words matching exercise, students have to match two words and form compound words. There are 10 compound words with only one answer. First, connect the dots in each column. Next, think of additional compound words on an additional piece of paper.
20. Prepositions of Movement
In this Prepositions of Movement Worksheet, students can practice the various ways how prepositions connect with the movement of objects. For example, we use words like onto, out of, into, toward, off, over, up, and down. These are prepositions of movement because they express the flow and direction of each preposition.
21. Prepositions of Time
We use prepositions of time (in, at, and on) for the various aspects of time. But when do you use “in”, “at” and “on”? In general, we use “in” before for months, years, seasons, and historical periods. In English, “at” is for specific times, places, and meals. And we use “on” for days of the week and specific dates.
22. Prepositions of Place
Prepositions of place describe the location of an object. For example, is the object under, on top, next to, behind, or in front? In this prepositions of place worksheet, students have to write a sentence to describe the location. For example, they can use the words “on”, “around”, “out of” in this preposition worksheet.
23. Prepositions of Location
Prepositions of location describe the location of an object. For example, is the object under, on top, next to, behind, or in front? In this preposition practice worksheet, students practice prepositions by writing down the location of the ball in each scene. Where is the apple in relation to the box(es)?
24. Present Perfect Questions
First, start by reviewing the present perfect verb form. For example, “Have you ever been to Disneyland?” is in present perfect verb form. The basic structure for present perfect questions is as follows: Have you ever, never, already, yet + Present perfect? As you ask this type of question, students have to go to the “YES” or “NO” side of the room.
25. “Where” Questions
In groups of two, students have to go back and forth asking each other “where” questions. According to household items, they have to identify where the items are located. For example, where is the car? The car is in the garage.
