Perfect for both naming a vocabulary item and then also describing the action of that vocabulary item. Things do things right? So as teachers we shouldn't teach vocabulary separate of the actions/functions of those words/things. This is just good practice. If you teach a noun, make sure you teach it with a verb/adjective/adverb associated with it.
