Teaching the rules for marking regular past tense verbs and regular plurals is a challenge compounded by the fact that many of the students that need help with grammatical structures are also struggling readers, or are students with a history of or an existing articulation or phonological disorder. This makes many of the materials and worksheets available too challenging for them.
Amy Byers requested a packet of worksheets to work on regular past tense verbs and regular plurals that were organized according to how they sound to the ear. She also wanted them to be appropriate for the beginning reader. All of the worksheets either have a picture to accompany the word or are simpler word structures, (I tried to use consonant-vowel-consonant words whenever feasible). If this was not possible, I've used rhyming words so students can sound out the words and experience success.
This packet was designed for use by a Speech Pathologist. It could also be used by an ESL teacher, Special Education teacher, K-1 regular education teacher or a second grade teacher working with struggling students.
All of the worksheets have a theme that is commonly used in elementary classrooms (pumpkins, food, apples) or are of high interest to younger elementary students (superheroes, haunted house). If you click on the preview page, you will see a detailed outline of all the worksheets. I've also included a teaching tool to use to explain the difference between voiced and unvoiced consonants. All worksheets are in black and white-all you have to do is print them out! The teaching tool is in color and should be printed and laminated.
