Your beginner English Language class will listen to some sentences about familiar everyday activities.This activity is suitable for oral and written practice both in a class grouping and for pairwork.
They will listen closely to the sound of ed that they hear at the end of the verb as you say these sentences. They will be noticing the three sounds the “ed” ending can make while they listen. (“t”, “d” or “ed”). This is a fun activity in rich text format that can be displayed on an LCD projector, or modified for whiteboard use.
The teacher says the sentence aloud, then the verb in the simple perfect form. Students repeat them and then circle the correct ending sound they hear of the “ed” ending.
Students then can pair up and take turns dictating aloud the rest of the sentences with a partner, collaborating on what sound of “ed” they hear as they practice the sentences together.
