Fun With Verbs

My class and I had so much fun working on verbs in November.  {Yes, November. Remember that I have been a tad absent in my blogging?}

We started out our unit on verbs by singing this groovy song by Have Fun Teaching.  It was great to get the students up and moving.  {Warning:  This song will get stuck in your head and your significant other may look at you strangely when you start singing "A verb is a word.  It's an action word."}


Funny side story - I was being observed on my use of Kagan strategies and this was my little intro to my lesson. See where this was going?  Yep, for some reason right at that moment was when Youtube decided to stop working on my classroom computer. Going with the punches, I had the students sit down to start our strategy.  No sooner had they sat down, the video started playing again.  So we got up and started singing and dancing.  I am so glad my Instructional Coach had a great sense of humor and enjoyed the song.  {She was dancing along with us!}

We also did another activity that got my Kinders up and moving.  I call it The Verb Can.  Original, I know.  Don't be jealous of my creativity.  haha

Anyway, I had different verbs written on slips of paper in an empty can.  I would pull a piece of paper out and my Kinders would act it out.  The students had so much fun!  When they would start to giggle, I would say "The verb wasn't giggle" and that would make them giggle even more.  We had such a great time!

I had a little time this morning and I decided to cutesy it up a bit.  {I have to say it was great getting back into the designing mood.  It's been a while. :) }

I can't wait to take it to school and show it to my Kinders.  They will love the updated version!


If you would like to have your students giggling up a storm while practicing verbs, you can get your copy {here}.  I have it discounted right now for 20% off.


I would love to give away a few copies of The Verb Can to my followers.  The first three followers that comment and leave their email address will get a free copy.

What fun activities do you do in your classroom to practice verbs?

  2. That is such a great idea. I play a type of Simon Says using verbs.
