Verb Poems for Children

Kids Playing Outside

Make a list of all the verbs that you can find in my poem, but also look for others in other poems too.
National Verbies Day

Wash your face, dress yourself,

     Eat your breakfast fast;

Grab your bag, wave to Mum –

     You’re off to school at last.


Say hello to all your friends,

     But don’t forget the day:

Today’s a very special day,

     It’s National Verbies’ Day.


Fetch your paper and your pen

     And write your name in ink.

Put your thinking cap on straight,

     It’s time to have a think.


Listen to your teacher 

     For it’s her turn now to speak.

The school bell rings, it’s playtime

     So let’s play at hide and seek.


It’s PE now.  Oh, verbs like that!

     You’ll run and jump and climb,

But all too soon the bell will ring

     For now it’s dinnertime.


Verbs get hungry too you know -

    Their energy runs low -

But, as you live your life with them,

     I’m sure you really know.
