This language activity is the perfect way to engage students, get them moving, and practice the past, present and future tense of both regular and irregular verbs.

The Verb Tense Monsters packet includes 24 cards, 5 student work pages and a corresponding answer key.

Each monster card features a unique monster and a word in either past, present, or future tense.

Set these cards up around the class for an all-class scavenger hunt or use them in centers as flash cards. Students will find the matching monster on their work page and fill in the word in past, present, and future tense, then choose one of the tenses to write a sentence.

**CCSS-Aligned to the following 3rd grade standards:
- CCSS.ELA-Literacy.L.3.1d Form and use regular and irregular verbs.
- CCSS.ELA-Literacy.L.3.1e Form and use the simple (e.g., I walked; I walk; I will walk) verb tenses.

This is a very similar activity to my highly-rated Monster Math activity and a great way to get the kids up and moving in your class :) For more Monster activities, be sure to check out the custom category on my sidebar.
