V is for Action - A Book About Verbs

V is for Action - A Book About Verbs

This book was written and illustrated by third grade speech/language students to improve their understanding and use of verbs. It is based on two books "To Root, To Toot, To Parachute" and "Q is for Duck".

Where is the Leprechaun?

This is an example of a project I just completed with my kindergarten speech/language students. Many of them have difficulty with pronouns, substituting him/he or her/she. This project was completed to practice using the correct pronouns, along with positional words, such as in, on, under, etc.

The students colored a small leprechaun, which I cut out to save time. Then they took turns putting the leprechauns in "hiding places" and I took a picture of each leprechaun. Then the photos were imported into Boardmaker Studio, and printed along with a picture sentence.

They absolutely loved this project and were motivated to read the sentences and share the book in their classrooms. I am sure there area many other she, he or it's that could be hidden around the school!
