Just for information, I teach Kindergarten, so I thought that introducing verbs as actions was the most appropriate approach for their age.
I found a terrific book called: "If You Were a Verb" by Michael Dahl, and used it as the introduction piece. Then we played a quick game of "Simon Says", which worked perfectly after the book, providing students with the opportunity to move and jump around for a little while. Basically, I started naming verbs, and throwing some nouns in the mix. If I said a verb, they had to act it out, but if the word was not a verb, they would have to freeze. After the game, we worked on my interactive brochure:

Another important event this week, of course, was Groundhog Day. We worked on our Daily Gazette, and this fun craft:
All our Kindergarten classes went to see "The Little Mermaid" presented at Port Saint Lucie High School, and we were all just amazed! We had such a wonderful time! These high schoolers were truly fantastic! Everything from the stage displays and backgrounds, actors, costumes, band musicians, to the singers, was absolutely fantastic! I wish I had pictures to post, but we were not allowed to record or take pictures of the show. Sorry! It is not a wonder that all the shows left for the season have been sold out!
