Includes two mini games to practice identifying action verbs...
*Action Verb Charades- Cut apart the verbs. Pass one out to each student. Call students up one by one. If they have an action verb, have them act it out and have other students try to guess. If they have a non-action verb, have them write it on the whiteboard. At the end, discuss the words on the board. Great introduction to linking verbs.
*Action Verb Boom- Cut apart the verbs. Place into a bucket. Have students play in groups of 2 or 3. Have them draw a card out one by one. If they draw an action verb they keep it. If they draw a linking verb they put all their cards back. First student to collect 5 cards wins.
