Students will sort past tense VERBS based on the end sound- the sound that "ed" makes.
"ED" can make the "T" sound, "D" sound, or the "ED" sound depending on the word.
There are 30 verbs for each sound- so there are 90 words total. Some words are simple to read, like "boxed" and some are more complex, like "recovered."
Good activity for a literacy center to reinforce phonics, verb tense, spelling, suffix "ed"....etc. Can be used as a whole class activity as well!
I also have cut/ paste worksheets using the same words featured here.
