We are going to be working on verbs this week. Action words. What we do.
Can we pause for a minute? Why do some language arts programs call nouns "naming words" and verbs "action words"? Exclusively? Shouldn't we be teaching the children the "real" names for the parts of speech? I can understand using the terms interchangeably so they are exposed to both. But ONLY calling verbs action words? I can imagine that there will be some upper level teachers who will be pretty mad at me, but I digress.
I have created a charades-like game for verbs. The children pick a card and then act out the words on the card...without talking. This should be interesting!
I have twenty-four verb cards. I will NOT do them all in one day. I will do four or five a day as part of our grammar study. This file also contains a culminating activity where the students have verbs in a word box and they have to match them with action pictures. They will also choose one of the verbs in the word box and use it to write a sentence.

But, I have something up my sleeve for a few of you. Because it is Sunday, and sometimes we just need something special to get our week started, the first three friends who leave a comment will get this verb pack for FREE! Just please leave me your e-mail!
