SPAG: Powerful Verbs!

A verb is an action word in a sentence- such as: go, do, run, see, speak.

We use powerful verbs to make our writing more exciting and interesting for our reader. This makes what we write, memorable (easy to remember) and entertaining (makes us feel things or think about things).

Write out these sentences and change the verb for a more exciting one!

Use these verbs to change the sentences:

gobble up, skip, whisper, shout, 

 1. The policeman said loudly " You're all under arrest!"

 2.  The children went across the playground happily.

 3. The huge crocodile ate all the Egyptians in the Nile!

 4. The pharaoh spoke softly to the scarab: " we shall meet again."


HINT:You can use a thesaurus to find alternative words for boring ones. Try out this online thesaurus to find more powerful verbs you could use in these sentences.

Type in gobble up, skip, whisper, shout.  Look at the verb section and copy the words you find.Make a list of 3 alternative words you find for each!
