How to teach Verbs

Using Charades Verb Activity, students play Charades to practice reading and acting out action words!

There are many different parts of speech for your students to know. This activity engages your students in a fun and interactive way to review verbs.

Grab a partner or a few friends and break into two teams. Shuffle the action word cards and place them in a pile in between both teams. One player picks the card from the top of the pile and acts it out for his or her teammates. Each team gets three chances to guess the word. If the team guesses the correct action word, they move ahead one space on the game board. If the team cannot guess the word after three tries, they move one space backwards. Players take turns acting out the action words.
