Angry Verbs {making grammar fun}

I shared this unit year and couldn’t help but bust it out again. It’s so stinkin cute and my kids love it. I did a review of noun, verb, and adjectives over the past two weeks to make sure these concepts are solidified! The thing that is difficult with children with autism is that because of their language deficit you cannot use only language to explain something. Saying a verb is an action means nothing to them. The key is tons of practice to teach discrimination. We started every morning group this week by making a list of verbs, nouns, and adjectives on the board. This really helps for discrimination.

I also really tried to pair our discussion about verbs with the “what” question since we are always working on answering wh- questions. After we did whole group work, we also worked on this in our centers so I could make sure all of the students were getting this.

Now came the fun part! We colored the pictures of our angry verbs:

And sorted them into Angry Verbs and Not Angry Verbs:

Here are out posters ๐Ÿ™‚

Then each of my students made 2 (1 was not enough! They wanted to make 2!!) of their own angry verb sheets. They filled in verbs on their own for each prompt.

And then we displayed them all in the hall because they turned out so freaken cute!!

Here is your freebie! Thisย Angry Verb Packetย includes 12 verb worksheets, verb and not verb birds, and the two titles (angry verbs & not angry verbs). Happy angry birding! Remember – teach to your students’ interests and you will rarely have a behavior issue! ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. This will be very helpful. My younger kiddos will love coloring the angry birds. I think on some I will even practice acting out the action or emotion. I have a big mirror in my room and they love to see themselves doing things in the mirror.

    Thanks for sharing!!!
