One of our fifth grade standards is working with the three types of verbs: action, helping and linking.  Obviously this is too much for a single day of writing instruction, so we broke it up into 3 different days of instruction.

Yesterday, we worked on action verbs because that's what students are most familiar with:

Today, we worked on helping verbs:

One of my awesome coworkers found this helping verbs song to the tune of Jingle Bells:

My students are having so much fun with our mini-lessons on language :)  After our lessons, they revise their own work and are sharing their published pieces.  I really like that our Being a Writer  unit has built in time for students to share their work with others.

I'll post more pictures after our anchor chart is done :)
