A fun, unique, teacher-made game!
THIS IS A MULTIPACK OF THREE GAMES FOR A DISCOUNTED PRICE!
THE THREE GAMES INCLUDED WILL BE:
1) Irregular Verb Sentences:
a. Each game will include 15 sentence strips with two sentences on each strip. The left side of the strip will have the verb in large, bold colored text with a representing picture. To the right of each verb, will be a sentence using the verb in past-tense and one using it in present-tense. The verbs will be missing from each sentence, leaving a blank line to be filled in.
2) Progressive Verbs:
a. Each game will include 10 sentence strips with a missing progressive verb. There will also be 10 strips that show how to add the /-ing/ to the verb and what it becomes when it is added. “run + ing = running”
b. A worksheet is also included that can be copied to make additional for your classroom or laminated (by you) to use for dry erase. The directions on the worksheet are to first write the missing letters (-ing) for all 10 words they sorted. Then, draw a line from the word to the matching picture on the right side of the worksheet. It also helps to highlight when you have to add an additional consonant or drop the ‘e’ when adding the –ing.
3) Past Tense Verbs:
a. Each game will include 8 large cards with a sentence in present tense, such as “Today I eat.” Each card will have a section for “incorrect past tense” and “correct past tense”. There will be two sentences per card to decide which one is correct and incorrect. An example of an incorrect one would be “Yesterday I eated”. An example of a correct one would be “Yesterday I ate.” The student will have to determine which one is correct and which one is incorrect.
b. A worksheet is also included that can be copied to make additional for your classroom or laminated (by you) to use for dry erase. The directions on the worksheet are to first read the root word in the left column. Then, circle the correct past tense word in the right column.
Also included are three small, laminated, envelopes to store the past and present-tense verb pieces. The envelope has a small piece of Velcro for convenient closure and storage.
The small envelope of pieces will be stored in a 11.5'' x 9.5'' plastic envelope for lasting durability. The large envelope will vary in color and may not match the color in the picture. However, all large storage envelopes will have a Velcro or string closure.
The outside of the plastic storage envelope will have kid-friendly directions with picture icons to help with understanding.
The sentences and picture/word pieces are printed on heavy-duty cardstock with colored ink AND laminated! The cardstock may vary in color, but will always be heavy-duty and laminated!
All games are great for use as independent work centers, working with a parent-helper, working with a paraprofessional, or working in peer pairs. Each game is designed for both general and special education!
FOR HOME USE:
All games are great for in-home use as well! They are great for use during spring break, summer break, holiday breaks, and as additional help or as homework!
