Descriptive Verbs

Why run when you can sprint? Why talk when you can gab? Why think when you can ponder? Help your student’s writing sparkle by introducing them to descriptive verbs. Descriptive verbs are more elaborate versions of regular verbs, and help improve a piece’s imagery and detail. Not only that, they’re sure to expand a student’s vocabulary, too. Search (or should we say peruse?) our worksheets, games, lesson plans and more.
