I have, Who has? is an easy-to-play irregular verb grammar game focusing on changing the most common Irregular Verbs from Present to Past and vice versa! While playing "I have, Who has?" your students will practice and review 55 different commonly used verbs that don't end with -ed! Many students struggle with irregular verb conjugation and need a fun and engaging way to help memorize tricky irregulars.

This game gives your students an opportunity to practice:

  • active listening skills (while waiting for their verb to be called)
  • reading skills (irregular verb ending pronunciations)
  • verb identification skills (being able to identify a verb and it's past tense)
