Action Card Charades

Make action cards to be placed at the Phonics/Reading center. These are blank cards with pictures of an action along with the name of that action. For example, Walk, Jump, Run, Swing, Eat, etc. could be used. Have all of the cards in a bin for this activity. One student should choose a card and act it out silently while their classmates guess the action and give the first letter or spell the word out. The student who guesses correctly picks the next card and continues with the charade. This activity is to be used as a supplement to a main center activity. It can also be used during "choice" times throughout the day.
