Swap Til You Drop!

I was lucky to be part of the Shop Til You Drop product swap. Each of us bloggers was paired up with a partner and we chose one product from our partner's TPT shop to use and review.
I have been paired up with the amazing Aimee from Primarily Speaking to review one of her products! She had so many amazing ones it was hard to pick but I decided on her Arrrsome Irregular Verbs packet.
The first thing we did was complete this student made book. It actually comes in whole pages but I chose to print 4 per page to save on copies. It has several ways for students to practice using and writing irregular verbs.
 Next, we completed this color code sheet. Irregular verbs were colored red and regular verbs were colored blue. After that, they sorted them in this flap book.

In our small group we played this correct/incorrect sorting game. I passed out the cards to the students and had them read one of their cards to the group. They had to tell us if it was correct or incorrect. If it was incorrect such as throwed or buyed, they had to tell the group what it should be.

 I put this concentration game in my word work center. Love that it had a recording sheet!

The favorite part of the packet by far for my students was this question and answer mingle. They got to walk around and talk like pirates while asking what the past tense form was of their word. SO. MUCH. FUN.

Aimee chose to try out my Close Reading: Informational Text {Common Core Style}packet, so make sure you visit her blog Primarily Speaking, to read all about it.
