Introduction (10 minutes)
- Begin the lesson by discussing actions. Potential discussion questions include: What is a physical movement of the body called? What do you do to clean your teeth? What do you do to dry your hair?
Explicit Instruction/Teacher Modeling (5 minutes)
- Have your students play charades and act out the action to other members of the class.

- Ask the students to make a sentence with that action word. For example: Raj is eating. Rahul is hopping like a frog.
- Explain that the action words are verbs.
Guided Practice/Interactive Modeling (5 minutes)
- Separate your students into groups of 4-5.
- Instruct them to play this game of action charades, and make sure each person acts at least once.
Independent Working Time (10 minutes)

- Instruct your students to exchange them with another group to act out.
- Enrichment: Encourage your students to find different types of verbs and use several in a sentence.

Assessment (5 minutes)
- Ask your students to make sentences about the index card actions or verbs.
Review and Closing (5 minutes)
