Description

Distinguishing when to use the –ed vs. the –ing form of participial adjectives is a very difficult task for English language learners. This game gives them a chance to practice that in a fun manner. There are 24 different sentences featuring 12 different verbs (there is one –ed and one –ing sentence for each verb). A digital Google Slide version of the game is also available for distance learning, complete with a special -ed/-ing script.

Learn more about this game, and others like it, in the blog post Cover Up Games.

Materials not included:

colored discs in at least two colors (one color per student) ~12 for each student (I used milk jug lids.)

To set up:

1. Print the board and the cards, there are two different boards—one in color, one in black & white. You will need one board and set of cards per 2 students. (I recommend printing different game sets on different color card stock. This way when you find a lone sentence card on the floor you know exactly where it belongs.)

2. Laminate the board and cards. (not required to play, but it helps them last a lot longer)

3. Cut the cards apart.

To play:

1. The first students draw a card, reads the sentence aloud, and then decides which form of the adjective correctly completes the sentence.

2. He/she then covers up a corresponding ending on the board.

3. The first student to get four of their pieces in formation (a straight line, square or four corners) is the winner.
