In our recent language arts lessons, we came across the problem of lie or lay. Those verbs are sneaky and cause me a fair share of second guessing. I found the review helpful because, really, how many of us say “I have lain on the sofa all afternoon eating bon bons?” Although it’s correct, it’s just weird.
Free printables to the rescue!
The Lie Versus Lay file contains two main printables:
- a mini poster (plus a version with blanks to fill in)
- a notetaking sheet (in two line styles)
I do hope that you have some reference books for English grammar. Every library needs one (or two).
- Everything You Need To Know About English Homework
- The Everything Grammar and Style Book: All the Rules You Need to Know to Master Great Writing
Lay vs. Lie Practice
Grammar, like math, requires some amount of practice to master. Here are some free printable worksheets (PDF) that I found online to supplement our study:
- Misused Verbs: Lie/Lay
- Confusing Words: Lie and Lay
As always, I love to hear when you use the free printables from The Notebooking Fairy in your homeschool. If you send me photos, I will feature you in a Show Off post.
