We've been working on verbs this week.
Take a peek.
"A Verb Rap". This was a perfect brain break. You can find this video by clicking here.
We also had a fun Friday activity on verbs called " Angry Verbs". I had copied coloring pages of the Angry Birds from here. Then students chose their favorite Angry Bird to color. We talked about the game and all of the action verbs associated with this game.
The students also played an "I Spy" verb game. This is very similar to scoot. I created verb task cards and a work mat for students to use.
Tomorrow we will have a mini lesson on verbs in the past tense. Students will have to write down all the verbs they find in the past tense in a selection of text. Shown below is the form that my students will be using. You can download it for free from Google Docs by clicking on the picture below.
I created a set of Power Point presentations that I use as quick mini lessons when introducing the different verb concepts. These briefly go over the concept I want my students to understand. They include examples and practice of the skill.
I also created a set of 5 activities that can be incorporated into stations or whole group activities. These are aligned to the common core standards and have the standards included on the upper left hand corner of each activity. The "I Spy" Verb activity is one of them. Also included is Vacation with Verb Tenses- Sort Game, The "Be" verb sort, Irregular Verbs -Race to the Finish, and Action Packed Super Hero Writing
Well back to work. I've procrastinated long enough. I'm being evaluated tomorrow, and I have an E.L.A. Common Core Presentation to prepare for that will take place later in the afternoon.
Thanks for stopping by!
Just a couple of more things....
