Favorite Verbs in Picture Books: Call for Help!

3 Comments

When you are reading a book out loud, one which requires movement, what are your favorite verbs? Ones that really flow from your tongue and make it easy for the kids to act.

Imagine you’re a popcorn kernel. What kinds of action could humans do to mimic a popcorn kernel popping?

Would love your ideas!! Shamelessly begging for your ideas, actually. Will provide chocolate to idea givers. Or…popcorn?
