A verb tense game that's extraordinarily fun! Your students will love guessing the rhyming riddles as a speech therapy activity or in your classroom. Targets grammar practice of subject verb agreement with past-tense action verbs plus expressive language, inference, listening comprehension, and vocabulary for a whole-class activity or use just a few boards for small groups.
Bingo Riddles make mixed groups easy by targeting multiple goals with a single activity!
This Evidenced-Based resource is Level 1 which includes high-frequency irregular past-tense verbs and those typically mastered in conversation by age 7.
Level 2 which is appropriate for ages 7 and older is available in my store separately HERE.
Why address irregular verb tense early? Which verbs to teach first?
Written irregular verb forms are typically taught in school in 2nd grade and beyond. However, development of the verbal use of irregular past-tense verbs begins earlier, and is important for developing expressive language skills which are the building blocks for written language.
Roger Brown’s Stages framework (Brown, 1973) indicates that irregular verb forms emerge early between 25-46 months of age.
I've used the developmental sequence identified by Shipley, Maddox & Driver, 1991. Shipley et. al looked at the age of mastery of 49 irregular past-tense verbs and found that while many irregular past-tense verbs developed early, others were still not mastered by the age of 9.
