action word charades. I have my kids brainstorm verbs, they can then choose one to act out and classmates guess.

I like the charade idea.

Make up a silly story (sort of like Mad Libs) and have the kids say some answers. Here's an example:

Once upon a time, there was a huge wolf and he loved to ______. One day when the sun was ________, he _______ as fast as he could to the little cabin at the edge of the woods. Inside Goldilocks was busy ______ her breakfast. When she _______ out the window and ____ the wolf she _______ as loud as she could.

You get the idea. You can read it and have the kids take turns supplying serious or silly answers.

Another idea is to ask them questions like:

1. When you go on vacation what do you like to do?

2. When you go to recess, what do you like to do?

3. When your friend comes over, what do you like to do?

4. When it's chore time at home, what do you NOT like to do?

Ask for one word answers and you'll get a lot of verbs like swim, skate, kick, run, play, eat, talk, clean, fold, scrub, etc.
