My class and I created a game one day when we were learning about verbs. I always enjoy hearing what ideas the class will come up with when you present them with a challenge. Ever since this was created about 10 years ago, my students have LOVED playing it. So…now we have Adjective Antics which is a an extension of Verb Charades!
You can probably put them all together in one basket and as your students act them out, have them tell you if they are an adjective or verb! (Of course you would have to purchase Verb Charades in order to do this!!!) Look for a BUNDLE coming soon!
You can glue the “adjective” pictures onto a colored popsicle stick or simply place them in a basket, box or jar. I usually placed the cards on sticks face down in a plastic jar with the sign attached to the front of the jar and kept it by my easel for easy access and it was always a great game to give a sub for a filler. The children also enjoyed playing it at Indoor Recess and if they had a choice activity. They would play this in small groups or with a partner! It is a very versatile game!
The directions are similar to the good old game of Charades except you are simply acting out a adjective or with this game, which is a bit harder than Verb Charades, you can point to something and draw a picture to represent the word.. One child picks from the jar figures out what the picture and word shows, let’s you see it for proof and then acts it out or draws it for the class. The class gets 3 guesses. Whoever gets it correct, is the next person to act out or draw the adjective. If no one guesses it, I use my picking sticks, which have the student’s names on them, to randomly choose the next person to act it out!
I hope your class enjoys this games as much as mine have!
ENJOY! Thanks for purchasing, downloading, browsing, and inspiring!
I hope this brings a little sunshine your way!
