I am so grateful for your feedback. This little four-pack is a differentiated set of pages to teach beginners about inflectional endings. It can be used a variety of ways: guided, with buddies, and independent or all three which is what I did.
There are suggestions for use as well. I actually used this little pack for four different 30 minute periods for first grade ESL but it could also be placed into a literacy center for even more practice or used as part of an intervention.
Word card work mat
8 regular root word cards
8 inflectional endings cards (-ed and -ing) copy extras if you need to do so
Three-column recording page/sort for present, past, and progressive tenses that I labeled: root word, -ed, -ing
RF 1-3 is the Reading Foundations standard this file supports.
Suggestions for Use:
I make items that I use in my own ESL classroom; in other words, I don’t make items just to sell. Some items are quick like this one. I made it out of necessity because I have a couple first graders who are autistic and I wanted to practice endings and differentiate at the same time. All the kids practiced manipulating the cards. Students glued the word and ending cards in an interactive journal. Then we practiced writing the words on chart paper together. I also included a sheet with blank cards that you could use as a work mat or gluing mat. Finally, the students wrote the words on the three-column chart. Some students were able to work independently and some needed support, but it was all good.
