              STUDENT MISCONCEPTIONS

              • Students may confuse adjectives with verbs and vice versa. It is important to clarify the difference between the two.
              • Some students may struggle with identifying verbs that are not actions, such as "is" or "am". Be sure to provide examples of these types of verbs.
              • Students may have difficulty identifying verbs when they are paired with a noun in a sentence. Encourage them to focus on the action in the sentence to determine the verb.
