How to play:
Print, cut and laminate cards. You can choose the one of the sets or all of the cards for the game (The verbs that required double consonants when “ed” or “ing” is added are the cards with 2 robots. The other verbs do not require any changes before the ending is added.
Place the card deck in the middle. Have students take turns picking a card and expressing the verb’s past tense. You can also ask students to use the verb is a sentence and/or sort the verbs by ending sound (does the “-ed” sound like “t”, “d” or “id” when you say it?).
If you get the “screws loose” card, you have to put all your cards back. If you get the “Rowdy Robots!” card you get to keep the card and take another turn. The player to have the most cards at the end of the game session wins!
