Activity Overview


Using storyboards is a great way to teach students the difference between reflexive and non-reflexive verbs. The images help visual learners identify a clear difference between the different versions of the same base verb. In this activity, students will create a storyboard that illustrates the use of verbs both reflexively and non-reflexively.

Have beginner students practice depicting and describing scenarios using common, everyday reflexive verbs, or have more advanced students demonstrate the difference between verbs that change meaning in reflexive form. Make the assignment more complex by requiring use of the verbs in a tense other than the present.
