I have found myself having to teach verbs so much this year…more than normal. Some of my students with language impairments are having such a hard time with regular past tense, not even the cursed irregular, that I started from square one. I acquired this Super Duper book and it really breaks it down to the nitty gritty, which my kids have needed. In addition to this resource, I needed a little hands on activity, so I came up with this one!
First of all, let’s talk about my love affair with the die cut machine. It’s fantastic. I need all the shapes of all the things for all the activities. And since the book uses the train analogy for piecing together a subject and verb, I stalked the patterns until I found an engine and car. I also laminated, because I want to be able to use them over and over…I can use these for other things too (I’m thinking final consonant deletion, phonological awareness activities, and sequencing)!
