  • Good for use on imperative verbs.
    I like the fact there is an edited version so I can tailor it to my class.
    There is a spelling error on the editable sheet (Recipes is spelt Recipies) but easily corrected as the version is editable!

Imperative verbs, sometimes called bossy words or bossy verbs, are words we can use to give people instructions or tell them what to do. They can sometimes be used with exclamation marks to show that somebody is being loud or bossy. For example, 'shut that door!' 'Turn left at the traffic light.' 'Put your coat on.'

This worksheet lets you match the verb to the sentence to make an imperative. It then lets you use imperatives more freely to give somebody instructions about how to make a sandwich.
