Past Participle Hyakunin Isshu

It’s difficult to memorize the past participle, but this karuta game hopefully makes it a little easier (and more fun).

Make a list of irregular verbs to be used in the game. My list has 28 verbs.

I played it in 2 lessons.

Passive Voice Sentence Unscramble

I made this as the warm up activity for teaching passive voice.

First, make as many sentences as you’d like to test the class on.  I chose six.

Print out the sentences on three different colored papers so that:

Blue is the Subject + be -verb

Red is the past perfect verb

Yellow is the remainder of the predicate.

 

Put the cut-outs into an envelope and make enough that each team has one envelope. 

I explained the rules as I passed the envelopes out and gave the class two minutes to assemble the sentences.
