“Language is a tool to feel, perceive, think and express.”
An action word is a verb that expresses physical or mental action. Play, Jump, Eat, Work, Study, Drive, Walk, Write are various examples of the same. Teaching simple action words to children is useful because it lays the groundwork for other important lessons in the future. By the second grade or so, children start working with different parts of speech. We conducted a flash cards activity wherein students were involved in the hands on experience of doing various actions which resulted in quick and long-lasting knowledge of various action words.
