This activity practices regular and irregular past tense verbs as well as story comprehension. Students can work individually or in small groups. It can be done as a race or as a worksheet. The worksheet contains six pieces of a story that are out of order and has the verbs missing. First, the students need to put the correct verbs in the blank. I usually check the students work at this point to make sure the verbs are spelled correctly. Then, they need to read the story for understanding and put it in the correct order. As a race, the first person/team to finish is the winner.
