Free Verb Tense Poster Puzzles - From Past to Future Tense and Participles


Use these free puzzle strips as posters or a sorting activity for verb tense. For the activity, keep the first strip intact and let the students use it as a guide so that they will order their cards in the same order as the titles on the header strip below.

This free set has eight strips and they are already placed in order as they are printed here.

Here’s another activity:
If you are just introducing your students to the topic, it would be a practical idea to first group the past tense and the past participle cards as one category called ‘Past’. Group the present Tense and the present participle as Present. And the future tense cards can be in its own group ‘Future’. Now each group can be examined and further separated e.g. look at these two ‘Past Cards’ on the left. Ask the students to spot the differences. Do this with other ‘Past cards’. This will help them to learn that one card has ‘Past Tense’ verbs and the other has ‘Past Participle’. This method can also be used with the ‘Present’ cards.

About Me

My photo
As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
