This week we spent two days working on verbs. The first day we reviewed verbs (my kiddos keep getting confused on verbs, nouns, etc) and we started talking about verb tenses. In second grade, the language standard focuses on students being able to use irregular verb tenses – made, swam, ran, etc. The CCSS standard is L2.1.
First, we created an anchor chart together. We reviewed what a verb was and came up with some examples. Then, we used a mini tree map to practice changing the tenses of the verbs.
After creating our anchor chart, the kids went on a verb hunt using picture books. They each could pick a book of their choice and then they had to read each sentence, find the verb, and write the verb in their verb circle map.
Then, on day 2, came the fun interactive activity. I created a Verbs – Around the Room
Activity for students to complete. There were 24 cards. Some asked questions on identifying the verb, some on changing a verb to a different tense, and some cards ask what tense the verb was in. This provided more practice on regular and irregular verbs and it is now available in my TPT store. Check it out here
