Get playful with verbs to help your learners succeed in conveying personality and emotion. To start, ask your class to compare the two included statements that are the same except for the verbs. Next, small groups choose a scenario from a stack of cards and act it out while the whole class brainstorms verbs that go along with the presentation. Wrap up with a brief individual check for understanding. While this resource is designed for the Common Core, some of the standards are from lower grades. The ideas apply; however, you might need to add more complexity to reach the standards in your grade level.
