Action Verbs

Teaching Students to Identify Subjects and Verbs
Jack Hartmann


This song is available on Jack Hartmann's Cool Beats That Teach.

(Chorus)
Action verbs give subjects action
They are the words that make things happen
To find them ask yourself if it’s true
Is it something that a person or thing can do?
To find them ask yourself if it’s true
Is it something that a person or thing can do?

The boat sailed across the ocean.
The subject is boat - what can it do?
Sail, sail, sail - the action verb is "sailed
."

The flames burned higher and higher.
The subject is flames...

.....

The rocket blasted up into space...

.....

Repeat chorus

The runners stretched before the race...

.....

Our football team celebrated a win...

.....

Big trucks roll down the road...

.....

Repeat chorus
