Verbs! I know that you and I both are flooded with kids who need to work on verbs…whether it’s understanding what a verb is, being able to change verb tense correctly, or expanding their vocabulary to include more variety of verbs in their language, I’m sure you have a need for materials in this area! Well, ME TOO! This is a system that I created to meet the needs of my K-2 crowd. I needed something flexible that I could target lots of different goals with and I am loving how it turned out! Here’s a peek of the spring version…but I have one for each season! There are three sets of cards of varying levels, picture + word, picture only, and word only. You can use these to drill, with the included game board, or for matching games like memory or Go Fish. With my readers, I plan on using the word set paired with the picture set to have them work on recognizing and decoding the verb to match the picture.
There is the past, present, future tense sorting page that you can pair with the cards to work on
changing the verb to the correct tense. Once you laminate them, you can also write on the picture cards for each tense, then just erase to work on the next one!For the sentence strips, I plan on creating a file folder activity like what’s pictured, with a folder for each tense. You can use Velcro to attach the pictures and students can make various sentences to target their goals.This WH words cue card is for the students who need to work on expanding their sentences. You can also write on this if you laminate it!The game board is bright and fun and perfect for spring! It’s two pages, so you can use it in a file folder as well, or just laminate the pages together.Last, I included a data collection sheet that you will help you monitor your students’ progress!
