Perfect for speech-language therapy or a language arts lesson! This is a great language activity that targets many areas at once. The focus is on eliciting correct verb forms based on the question asked for both regular and irregular verbs.
-regular past tense verbs (12 pages)
-irregular past tense verbs (21 pages)
-present progressive tense verbs
-future tense verbs
-common nouns vocabulary
-temporal concepts and vocabulary (e.g. yesterday, next week, last night, tomorrow, etc.)
-general expressive & receptive language (using full sentences to respond to wh- questions)
Each page asks 3 questions about a character: 1 about the past, 1 about the present, and 1 about the future. Students will answer each question using full sentences. For example, "Kristy ate broccoli yesterday. Kristy is eating a cookie right now. Kristy will eat strawberries tomorrow." (An example page is provided.)
Natural questions are used to elicit these verb forms:
regular: wanted, played, called, helped, laughed, needed, cooked, talked, opened, moved, visited, used
irregular: ate, found, drank, got, felt, sat, swam, said, bough, ran, grew, brought, caught, taught, saw, read, was, made, went, wrote, had
More specifically, present progressive tense is elicited most often (e.g. "is going"). These forms are used more often and sound more natural when responding to typical questions.
(e.g. "will go")
