Transcript of NEW REVISED Action Verb Prezi

Jump, Run, Explore! Do we use action verbs? So, what is an action verb? By definition, an action verb is "a word belonging to the part of speech that is the center of the predicate and which describes an act or activity"(dictionary.reference.com). So when you tell me that you play outside, run in gym class, or dance in the music room, you're using action verbs! Great job! "Walk, rock, drop, push, pull, flop, hop, spin, dance, jiggle, wiggle, prance." -from "Jiggle, Wiggle, Prance" by Sally Noll

"Reach for the sky, wiggle your toes. Stick out your tongue and touch your nose." -from "Clap Your Hands" by Lorinda Bryan Cauley. Yes, absolutely all the time! We use action verbs to describe what we are doing at any given moment. If I tell you I'm hopping, jumping, running, exploring, or even dancing, I am using action verbs. Can you tell me something you do every day
