{Free Printable} Irregular Past Tense Cards & Research on Developmental Sequence

Irregular Past Tense Cards and norms


I stumbled across research on the developmental sequence for irregular past tense verbs as I was writing new goals for one of my 6 year old patients. I had always found myself a bit frustrated with the existing card decks available to target irregular past tense when first introducing them to young kids. Now I realize why. There is a wide range of ages in which these develop. So I created cards in Boardmaker to target the earliest developing ones. I am also sharing a data collection sheet with the norms included.

More info on how I used these:

I paired these cards with some video clips so I could pause and comment about the action before it happened, during the action and then in the past tense after it happened. I purposefully used videos that tied into his high interest areas. Having these cards paired with videos provided enough visual support for it to click for him. Once the concept made sense to him he was able to quickly memorize irregular past tense.
