Verbs: Part Three

Verbs are action words. They tell us what a noun (person, animal or thing) is doing.

  • The boy is playing in the mud.
  • The dog is rolling in the mud.
  • The toy is covered in mud.

Activity 1:

Identify the verb in each sentence. In your Writing Journal, see if you can write your own sentence using the same verb. Don’t forget to sound out the words on your own!

Activity 2:

Take a video of yourself doing any of the following actions:

  • Hop on one leg
  • Dance to your favourite song
  • Bounce a ball
  • Climb in the playground
  • Swing across the monkey bars
  • Waddle like a duck

Can you think of other more creative verbs?

Please remember to send the videos to your teacher by Thursday.

What Are Pronouns?

Pronouns replace a noun in a sentence. For example, “John is going to the park” could become “he is going to the park”.

These are the pronouns that we often see and use:

Activity: Can you fill in the missing pronouns? Choose the correct pronoun for each sentence, and write the sentences in your Writing Journal.

What Are Proper Nouns?

Proper nouns are used to give common nouns a specific or particular name. They start with a capital letter. E.g. Boy is a common noun. John is a proper noun.

Activity 1:

Can you come up with any proper nouns to match these common nouns?

Activity 2:

Play Common and Proper Noun Bingo. Take turns calling out either ‘proper’ or ‘common’, and put a counter on a correct square each time. The winner is the first person to get four in a row. You can then colour in your game board using blue for common nouns and red for proper nouns.

Adjectives: Part Two

Adjectives are describing words. They describe people, places, animals or things.

Adjectives describe a noun so when you are writing a sentence, the adjective will often sit before the noun. Example: I can smell the fresh flowers. (‘Fresh’ is the adjective.)

Activity 1: Can you find and write down the adjectives in each of these sentences?

Activity 2: Can you fill in the blanks with the right adjective for each animal?
