FREE Lie vs. Lay Notebooking Pages from the Notebooking Fairy

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)

Grammar Reference

I do hope that you have some reference books for English grammar. Every library needs one (or two).

  1. Everything You Need To Know About English Homework 
  2. 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:

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.

This is great! Thanks for such a great resource! Do you happen to have any of these available for rise/raise and set/sit?

    Great idea, Brandy. I got an email from another reader requesting effect/affect. Maybe I’ll whip up some more of these easily confused word pairs.

      Great!! These will fit in well with our Classical Conversations memory work in a few weeks! We’ll send our CC followers over here to grab them, too!

      Thank you!!!

Thanks! I remembered that you had these, and the lay-lie quandary just came up in our Sonlight LA. We’ll be using your resources to solidify this one!

Thank you, once again, for the wonderful notebook pages! We came across this issue with lie/lay today, and I knew right away where to turn for help. You are a blessing!
