-ed and -ing endings Worksheets
Busy Teacher has collected
45 worksheets on adjectives with ed and ing endings
so that you do not have to start from scratch when planning lessons of your own. For intermediate students and above, you can use
this great PowerPoint presentation
to explain the differences between these two adjective forms. Towards the end of the presentation there are some practice sentences with blanks; these can be completed as a class. Be sure to give students the chance to think about and provide the answers before revealing the answers. This is a good opportunity to check student comprehension so do not skip over it. The last two slides can be done by calling on volunteers or by asking students to write their own sentences to go along with the images. Working individually is important so you can see that the progression of activities in this presentation from introduction to individual work is very gradual and not at all intimidating for learners. Depending on your school, you may not be able to use presentations such as this one but you can still use the material in your lesson or use another worksheet from this section instead.
