Superstar Associations, Inferences, and Actions
Your students will build word association skills, make inferences, and learn to use 50 different verbs as they become superstars in this fun role-playing activity.
This packet includes 3 sets of printable cards and an activity that will have you and your students laughing their way through acquisition and recall of 50 frequently occurring action words/verbs.
Set one, Instructional Cards, includes 50 cards that teach 50 actions/verbs. The cards provide an action word, two words associated with the action word, i.e., nose + flower are associated with smelling, bike + helmet are associated with riding, and an illustration of the action. The illustrations provide a base for the students to immediately use the action words/verbs in sentences.
Set two, Association and Inference Cards, also includes 50 cards. Each card presents one of the previously taught associated words pairs for 50 verbs/actions. The student is asked to use the associated words to infer the action that is performed when the associated words occur together. These can be used as a formal structured activity or as a fun role-playing activity in which one student acts out an action represented by the associated words while other students attempt to guess the action.
Set three, Answer Cards, provides the action/verb answers to the 50 Association and Inference Cards. The Answer Cards include point values and may be used with the Association and Inference Cards as students attempt to earn the most points by making correct inferences to identify actions.
