Bumblebee Morphology targets regular and irregular past-tense verbs using the visual cues of a bumblebee and a caterpillar/butterfly.
Students can practice past-tense verbs using the included cards.
-18 pairs of bumblebee practice cards target regular past-tense verbs which add an “ed” morpheme (shown on the bee’s stinger).
-21 pairs of caterpillar/butterfly practice cards target irregular verbs, as these verbs undergo a kind of “metamorphosis” to form the past tense.
For irregular verbs, both 1st person and 3rd person present-tense verb strips are provided as a contrast to the past-tense. Home practice game boards for regular and irregular past-tense verbs are included to support generalization.
