This SLAP IT game is an easy-to-play irregular past tense verb activity. It’s a fantastic way to practice 42 of the most commonly used past simple verbs with your students in groups or as a class activity. My students absolutely love playing this game!! It’s great for improving listening skills as students must actively listen for the past or present tense of the verb card to be called. *For younger learners this resource can be used as a memory game (matching past tense irregular verbs to the present tense)**This can also be used as a timed activity.
