These irregular past tense task cards elicit past tense verbs within a natural sentence context. My task cards reflect the past event in pictures and it is elicited with a question. The cards are folded so they are two sided. The answer is given on the flip side with a QR code. I have also used invisible pens to write the answer in the box.

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 can 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. The 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 or laminate them together to make a sturdier card.

An answer block has been added to make a TPT Digital Activity. The QR code can still provide a self check or you may decide to cover it with an answer block so it becomes invisible to students on a post test.

A QR code provides the answer when used with a bar scanner. There are a variety of apps you can download on mobile devices to provide this. 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.
