Grade Levels: K-3

These family and homeschool activities are designed to complement the Verbs topic on BrainPOP Jr.

I Made a Mistake

Write a short paragraph or a few sentences that contain mistakes in subject-verb agreement. You may want to write about how people sometimes make mistakes! Then have your child correct your writing. Encourage him or her to rewrite the whole sentence, fixing the mistake, and paying careful attention to punctuation.

Puppet Show

Use dolls or puppets to create a show together. Brainstorm a story and write it down. Encourage your child to use different verbs and challenge him or her not to use the same verb twice. Be sure to pay attention to subject-verb agreement. Then have the characters act out the story in front of an audience.
