Verbs that do not follow standard English patterns are covered in this 24-card set. At the top of exercise, students are shown the present, past, present participle, and past participle verb forms for an irregular verb. There are 10 sentences for each irregular verb with the verbs missing. Students read each sentence, select the correct verb tense, and write the answers on their papers. After completing the 20 sentences, students get the answer key, check their work, and record it on their checklist.

Most students will be able to determine the correct choice for each sentence by applying knowledge of grammar acquired through years of use. If some students have English as a second language or are struggling due to weak grammar skills, then additional instruction may be needed on topics such as tenses or auxiliary verbs.

Double-sided cards have one verb with sentences on the front and another on the back. Single-sided pages have one verb with exercises on the top and another on the bottom. The double-sided format produces task cards that are 8.5 X 5.5 inches and saves paper and lamination (15 sheets vs. 28 sheets). The single-sided format can be used as black-line masters for worksheets. The fascinating facts and trivia on these cards make learning grammar more enjoyable.

Punctuation cards also begin with a usage summary and examples. The 24 cards cover end-of-sentence punctuation, apostrophes, commas, quotation marks, colons, hyphens, semicolons, and parentheses. There are no capitals on these cards. Students correct the capitalization, as well as adding punctuation related to the card topic.

Task cards in this product are provided in both double-sided and single-sided formats. The contents are identical. The double-sided cards are printed two to a page (each 8.5 x 5.5 inches) and will require 28 sheets of cover stock and lamination for the cards and answer keys. This is the cost-effective option for producing reusable task cards. Single-sided pages require 53 sheets. These can be used as black-line masters for worksheets.

All Reading Manipulatives cards have a unique code that is used for selecting cards and student recordkeeping. Checklists are provided for tracking the materials that have been completed.
