52-Page Intermediate Verb-Forms Instructions & Ideas Book : Use With or Without a 108 Two-Sided, Three-of-a-Kind Card Pack
52 1/2 size pages
Who It’s For: Teachers & Independent Intermediate & Beyond Learners of Regular & Irregular Base + Simple-Past + Past Participle Verb Forms
Why You Need It: Because lessons on Present, Past, & Future Perfect (Continuous) Verb Forms & Structures tend to be “high-level,” they don’t often deliver Verb Vocabulary—the “Four Principle Parts” of every verb—a Base Form without endings, the Simple Past, a Past Participle, a Present Participle. The first two—Verb + Verb-ed (or Irregular Past Forms) are covered while dealing with Infinitives or the Simple Present; the last (Verb-ing) is integral to Continuous Verb Phrasing. So the Verb Vocabulary to be taught / learned at or above Intermediate Levels consists of Past Participles, which are the same as the Simple Past Forms for regular verbs, but different for many irregular verbs (like be/was/been or eat/ate/eaten)
With this Activity & Idea Book, you / your students can (re-)assure yourselves that acquiring grammar-based vocabulary can be as enjoyable as playing cards or other games. So can applying new words to meaningful verb-phrasing contexts. Whether you prefer to design / create Card Decks on your own—or to purchase and download Parts & Pieces D-13.12 from WorkLife English.com, these pages offer an abundance of information and ideas for using them in effective and efficient grammar lessons.
