This product contains the first two resources in my Verb Tense Instruction & Practice BUNDLE
Resource 1: Verb Tense Chart for Regular Verbs
This grid provides an explanation and examples for the twelve American English tenses. Distribute it as a handout or in-notebook anchor chart to be kept in a page protector. Both color and black and white versions are included.
Resource 2: Verb Tense Scavenger Hunt
This twelve-square grid is aligned with Resource 1. After initial instruction on tenses, provide students with access to magazines and newspapers written on several reading levels. They could even use history textbooks or novels they are reading for pleasure. The challenge is to find an example of each tense. The instructor might give students a specific amount of time for an in-class scavenger hunt, place students in pairs or small groups, or assign squares to specific students. When students are stumped, allow for movement with a one-minute “Give One, Get One” with the reminder that the students are still responsible for gathering correct sentences.
