๐Ÿ’ƒRegular Past Tense Verbs๐Ÿ’ƒ

Hi everyone,๐Ÿ’ƒ

A few years ago I was teaching past tense verbs to a group of my students.  I started to roll out the songs and old charts and realized I needed to make some new ones.   I like beginning my past tense unit with "The House That Jack Built".  I thought I would post a variety of charts from the past.  They aren't the prettiest charts in the world, but they are effective.

I love this song I wrote!


The brown paper showed the marker well.


The orange paper reflected light.

The white made the marker show easily.

There they I am off to make some new ones!

Happy Teaching!
