Svenska #decemberverb

Welcome to the December challenge! Here is a list of #decemberverb; one verb  for each day of the month of December. Your challenge is to learn the verb by somehow illustrating (in a broader sense), acting or demonstrating its meaning. This will help your brain to acquire the new word and to remember it.

This is meant as a challenge for you personally; trying another angle of learning. If you want to please feel free to share some results via e-mail, website or social media, using #decemberverb.

Illustrating as a tool for learning new vocabulary

If you have a hard time remembering a certain word in a new language try illustrating it (in the broader sense of the word)!  You can also try sentences and expressions.

Set your mind free! This is also a great way for children where play meets learning.

Cut out letters from a magazine and glue them back on a piece of paper, use brushes and paint, a swirly handwriting or yarn. Take a piece of play dough and try to shape the word, take pictures or make a stop motion video.

You can also use lego, flower petals, different apps, a microphone, cookie dough, a co-actor, pens and pasta, sand or snow. If you are in Sweden you can use Kaviar to write on your sandwhich.
