These irregular past tense task cards elicit the verbs within a natural sentence context. My task cards reflect the past event in pictures and the printed word is hidden. I wanted an activity the students could use after they have memorize verbs according to the usual prompts of what happened today and then yesterday.
The cards may also be used for interpreting and answering questions that use the words before, after, during and while. They can be used for making predictions when given a context.
This set contains 10 pages of cards for a total of 30 two sided cards; 3 ¼ inches by 2 ¾ inches when folded. These cards are set up so that the cards can be cut horizontally and remain joined in the middle. The right side card can be folded under the left side card making the back side and answer side of the card. You may want to glue them together to make a sturdier card. A QR code provides the answer if you would like to use a QR code reader. The reader I used is available at http://www.qrstuff.com/ . There are a variety of apps that will work on mobile devices. If you have a UV pen you can write the answers in the blue boxes. The answer will be invisible until students light it up with the pen light. Both of these methods will make it into a self checking activity and are highly motivating.
