My Heart Beats for You - and for VERBS! This interactive SMARTboard lesson - Valentine Verbs - My Heart Beats For You is a very cute way for students to practice identifying verbs around Valentine's Day. Students will read a sentence and then click on the heart that has a verb on it. If correct, the heart will beat for them by shrinking and growing a few times. It makes it fun for kids as they use their skills to determine which words are verbs. The sentence are complex sentences so they will need to use their critical thinking skills to answer. This could easily be used as a teacher directed mini lesson, a small group activity, or as independent practice in a center or station. The correct heart will "beat" telling them their answer choice is correct. If they have chosen an incorrect answer, the heart will not beat.
Created with Smart Notebook 11. Depending on the level of the class and the purpose of the lesson, this could be appropriate for grades 2-6. 2nd grade may need direct teacher assistance as in a mini lesson.
