How I Use Verb Interactive Placemats {Giveaway!}

Thursday, December 17, 2015
Teaching verbs to little ones can be a lot of fun. The best therapy happens when kids can incorporate movement and excitement into an activity. Verbs are perfect for that! What's a better way to teach jumping, running, and throwing than having them actually do the action and then talk about it? I have a student that is working on this goal. We have lots of fun playing Simon Says while she follows directions acting out target verbs. She is also working on using pronouns correctly, so I created these interactive placemats for her to practice using verbs while we also address pronouns!
This activity pack includes 16 pages of verb mats as well as picture cards to use to complete the sentence. I printed and laminated all the pages and then keep them together with binder rings (so it's like a book) There are 2 pages of the small cards included. This is so you can cut one up and attach it with velcro to the second identical page. I take this page out of the "book" for easy access and reference.
 For some students, the whole reference page may be too much, so just take 2-3 pictures off the sheet for them to choose from.
When I am using this, I first have the child choose the small card that matches the picture on the placemat. I ask him/her what the picture is showing then have him/her complete the sentence. For some, I just have them imitate the sentence until they can do this part on their own. 
There is something about velcro that gets kids engaged in an activity! I have also paired this with my Verb Flashcards for extra practice and carryover. Think your kids would enjoy this activity? You can download it in my TpT store here, or enter below for a chance to win a copy!
