Lights Camera Action Verb Charades


15 pages.

This packet is an interesting and fun way to build students' vocabularies, reinforce verb usage, synonyms, and dictionary alphabetizing skills. Great for Daily 5 or a game students can play with a substitute teacher, or when you have a few extra minutes in your day.The packet includes an action verb of the day poster, a cover for a student action verb dictionary, an alphabetical list of 172 action verbs, plus 172 mini action verb cards

Put a new verb on the poster each day.  Students can define it, use it in a sentence, add it to their dictionary and give as many synonyms for that verb as they can think of.  You could also ask them if this verb is ever used as a noun.

To play the Charades game, toss the cards into a container.  Gather the students in a circle and have them choose a card.  They have 30 seconds to act out the verb.  You decide on the rules if they can use props or a partner.

To keep the game fresh, challenge students to solve as many word cards as they can in a designated amount of time.  Keep track of their highest score to see if they can beat it each time you play the game.
