Let's Get Moving with Verbs!
1 The Hook
2 Direct Instruction
Present the verb video on BrainPOP Jr. After the video, discuss with the students what a verb is. Brainstorm ideas of verbs with the students, listing them on the board. Next, have students act out some of the verbs as you read through their list.
3 Group Practice
As a group, play the BrainPop Jr game, Catch the Verbs. Conduct formative assessments through observation as students play the game.
4 Independent Work
Inform students that they now have the job of finding verbs around the classroom. They are to record these verbs with their iPads and create a group of verbs in Popplet. Students can use themselves or fellow students as subjects for the verbs (running, smiling, reading, etc.).
