My class has been working on parts of speech.   I quickly drew this picture.  Then, we brainstormed what was happening in the picture.  I added their comments to my picture.

Afterwards, the kids worked in pairs.  Each pair talked about the picture and wrote what they saw.

Here is the picture one group used.
This is what they wrote.

Here is another sample.

The words on the left are smiling and lifting. 

This group separated their ideas based on the two people in the picture.

Overall, this was a good start to understanding verbs.  Next, we will be working on inflectional endings (s, ed, ing).  Since many of my students are English language learners, this will be an opportunity to look at verb tense as well.

Happy Learning and Teaching,
