I still don't have a clever name for Action???Man. :( Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!!! I introduced Being Ben today, my kids saw him next to Action???Man and knew he was Being something. They were calling him Being Boy or Being Man, I liked Being Boy, but I think I'll stick with Being Ben. I had words all around the room....but not just action and being verbs, I also had other random words. I don't watch Price is Right much anymore, but I started thinking of the game where contestants had a certain amount of time to change the prices to the correct spots. With a little change on that idea, I gave the students one minute, they could only get one word at a time and bring it to put under the correct character. Then I had a spot marked "Other" where they would put the words that were not verbs. I had them go one at a time to see who would get the most words on the board, but also who got the most correct. We did a couple of rounds and they enjoyed it! Both got most of the words correct with just a couple incorrect, which gave a great opportunity to talk about those words and what they were.
I decided to start making some bodies for the guys since they were a bit creepy as just heads. I still have to finish, but I like how things turned out so far.
