In Mrs. Essenburg's class we have been learning about verbs. What is a verb? I'll let Sara tell you.
After learning what a verb is, we got together and brainstormed a whole bunch of verbs. And because verbs show action, what better way to think and learn about verbs than to act them out? We got into groups and used our acting and directing skills to film each other. Take a look at the Verb Movie we created!
However, verbs alone are not enough. We use verbs as part of sentences. In fact, it is impossible to write a complete sentence without a verb.
Quite often, we have to add an ending, such as ed, or ing, to our verb. Sometimes we have to put helping words, like is or are, in front of our verb.

Kayla was swinging on the tire swing.
Your turn third graders! You can use a verb in our video or think of your own! Write a comment below with a sentence using a verb. Remember to think about whether or not you need to add an ending.
Any other visitors to our blog, we would love to see an action verb sentence from you as well!
