Three Ways to Practice Verbs

Fox Therapy Services • THE BLOG •


Looking for some fun ways to help your child work on verbs? Here are 3 fun things to try! These activities are great to help your child work on learning and using verbs in sentences, but also to work on very tensing. All activities can be used to work on future, present, and past tense verbs. 


  • Verb building Charades – Get the family together for a fun game of Charades with the category being verbs! Take turns acting out different verbs such as running, eating, sitting, etc.  Try to get another player to guess what you are doing. The first one who guesses the verb gets a turn to act it out. 


  • Obstacle course – Create an obstacle course through your house or yard with your child. Before you start the course walk through it with your child and talk about what will be done at each point using a variety of verbs (crawl, walk, jump, skip, etc.). Have fun with your child completing the course a few times, then see if you can create another one! 


  • Simon Says – This simple game is a great way to practice a variety of verbs! Call out different things for your child to do starting with Simon Says, for example “Simon Says stomp your feet.” This is a great game to play when working on verb tensing as well. While your child is completing an action ask them what they are doing (present tense), then once they are done with that action ask them what they did (past tense) making sure they answer both questions with the correct verb tensing. “I am stomping” and “I stomped”.
