Linking Verbs Worksheet: Find the Linking Verbs

In this linking verbs worksheet, students have carefully read all 15 sentences. In each sentence, they have to circle the linking verbs.

Linking verbs do not show actions. Instead, they link a subject to a noun or adjective in a sentence.

For example, in the sentence “I feel sick”, the linking verb “feel” connects to the adjective “sick”. And the subject in the sentence is “I”.
