Infinitive and Gerund

12 Sep

I like reading….and I like to read.  Did you know that both of these forms are acceptable?  How about…

¨I really don´t feel like doing exercise at the moment.¨  Why can´t I use the infinitive here?

Learning the difference between the infinitive and gerund can be tricky because you have to memorize some expressions and general rules.

Root Word Flashcards

(SOURCE: http://www.skillsworkshop.org/resources/root-word-family-cards)
Root word family cards are two sets of flash cards that can be used to visualise the concept of root words to entry level and L1 students.

The entry level cards contain a number of root words and their word families, with a picture representation of each word. The level one sheet contains a higher level of vocabulary and the pictures have been removed.

Lesson Ideas

  • The cards could be given to the students to group into word families. Entry level students could then look up the words in the dictionary and then write down their definitions.
    E3-L1 students could look for rules and patterns such as:
  • common suffix -ed What happens when a verb ends in a consonant + ‘e’ ? Omit the ‘e’ and add -ing to create the new word.
  • All levels can use the cards as a prompt for finding more words with the same root. E.g. applying, activity, enact, hoping (compare it with hopping), etc.
Physical format:

2 pages – 32 word cards, 16 picture cards
