  1. Jordanastaiman

    I work in teletherapy and don’t ever pay for resources because there are so many free ones available. But for this I made an exception and have not regretted it. ‘These worksheets are the only ones I’ve seen which divide up the irregular past tense verbs into patterns which makes it more orderly to teach my students. Thanks for this great idea and resource.

  2. Nicole

    I absolutely love this packet. When I first started having to teach irregular verbs in therapy I was so lost. Now that I have this packet it has become a breeze and the success rate has significantly shown. Thanks so much for this. I feel it even taught me a few rules as far as changing the vowel. Growing up we simply learned it with no explanation so it has been super helpful.

  3. Chelsea

    This product is amazing because it breaks down the verbs into different groups and their word endings such as -ought, -ept, etc.

  4. Gina Marucci

    I come back to this product with each student working on past-tense verb forms! I love how the verbs are organized by rule, which helps my students learn the patterns much faster. This product is thorough and works for therapy sessions or as homework practice!
