Working on Past Tense Verbs

In my CFY year, I remember sitting with a group and working on past tense verbs. We were drilling away using a fun game and video clips. I got some necessary data but noticed some of my students were struggling. I asked myself, “do these students even understand what I am taking data on?” Have they been taught the skills? Some of my kids understood verbs changed depending on “when” the action or state of being; took place. Many students did not understand this concept. I wrote about this in a blog post on teaching plurals. It sounds so simple, take the time to introduce the concept before “quizzing” or taking data.

Print & Go Past Tense Verb Activities

I have started to create activities that begin with mini-lessons and visual supports to determine if my students understand the concepts through instruction and practice before I take data. So whether it is past tense irregular verbs or multiple-meaning words, make sure that teaching, as well as practicing, is a component of your therapy routine.
