Verb Vocabulary Activity
You can also try some verb activities for students. Verbs are action words, so to teach preschoolers verbs that they can use, let them act out each one. Try a game like "Teacher Says," in which you give students various directions. Examples might be "Teacher says...jump up and down" or "Teacher says...crawl under the table." Use as many different verbs as possible, such as run, jump, hop, skip, gallop, crawl, walk, kick, dance, wave, smile, frown, sit, stand, sing, clap, tap, spin, and stomp. You may also try some more difficult verbs, such as slither, jiggle, or glide.
You can make this activity more challenging by including various adverbs in the directions as well. For example, you might instruct students to walk first slowly and then quickly, or they might lift their arms up high and then put them down low.
These preschool vocabulary exercises will help students learn new words and become more comfortable with the ones they already know. Try to use these words in as many different context as possible in order to reinforce them in the students' minds.
