The “Irregular Past Tense: What Happened 1st & 2nd” Series is a no-prep, no-print language activity, for small groups and individual work. This digital activity is engaging for students who are working on irregular past tense at the word, phrase, or sentence level. It can also serve as a delightful transition between sentence drills and conversational speech. Plus, the images in the Irregular Past Tense Series are fun, colorful, and sure to keep your students engaged.
As you click through the slide show, two pictures of a character completing different actions will pop up under the titles "1st", and "2nd." Below the image, the present tense verbs describing the character's actions are introduced. Students will tell what the character did first and second, using the irregular past tense of the target verbs. For example, “First the girl grew and second/next she hit the pinata.” If working at the word level, students can be asked to say the correct irregular past tense of the target verb. For non-readers, you could read the present tense verb aloud. If they are working at the sentence level, they could either imitate a sentence or, once they catch on, spontaneously narrate each slide.
To use, set PowerPoint to “Present / Slide Show” mode and, beginning with the 3rd slide, click for each animation or to advance to the next slide.
