These irregular past tense task cards elicit past tense verbs within a natural sentence context. An event is pictured and a question elicits the past tense form of an irregular past tense verb.

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. They can become double sided task cards. 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. The answer is given on the flip side with a QR code. A QR code can be used with a bar scanner App that can be downloaded on an electronic device.

An answer block has been added to make a TPT Digital Activity. The answer is hidden under a removable square.

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. All of these methods will make self checking activities and are highly motivating.
