Need some help- I'm not quite certain how to teach transitive/ intransitive verbs or what the point is- can someone please enlighten me. I teach 6th grade. Obviously, writing is not my forte.

I really work on transitive has a direct object and intransitive doesn't...that seems to make the most sense to them. Here's a worksheet that I found on-line, but I can't remember where so I'll attach it here...it really helped my 6th graders, plus we played games on-line with the Smart Board, but could be done on individual computers as well:

Good luck, hope this helps

I appreciate the extra sites and your willingness to help me out.

Just curious- it almost seems like the goal is to just identify which type of verb it is- don't most people naturally use them correctly? Or am I mistaken- will lessons on the difference between a transitive and intransitive verb somehow improve students writing and oral language?

I found it improved their writing because they can decide the message they are trying to give....you don't always need a receiver of the action...a lot of mine came in thinking that you had to have a direct object in a sentence. Plus I find their peer editing has improved because when a classmate's sentence doesn't make sense there are often verb usage mistakes.
