This verb tense resource includes engaging, interactive activities to help your students practice identifying verb tenses. Activities including both regular and irregular past tense verbs are included. They work well as word work or literacy centers in the first grade, second grade, and third grade.
The following activities are included:
Verb Tense Cut and Paste Sorts
: Students cut out verbs and paste them under the appropriate tense (past, present, or future). Two sorts containing regular past tense verbs are included as well as two sorts containing irregular past tense verbs and a mixed practice sort containing both regular and irregular verbs.
Spin a Sentence Activities
: Students use a pencil and paperclip to spin a subject, a verb, and a word or phrase that will reveal the tense of the verb. Students will use this information to create unique sentences and record them on the recording sheet. The recording sheet also asks students to circle the tense of the verb used. Two versions are included. One features regular verbs and the other irregular verbs.
: Sixteen task cards are included. Students identify the verb in the sentence on each card as well as the tense of that verb. Regular and irregular past tense verbs are included.
