Yesterday’s Photo Verbs program has just what your students need to reach their action word goals! The program includes a 143-page workbook and presents 160 regular and irregular past tense verbs divided into two parts:
In Section One (regular past tense verbs), students practice saying common 60 common action words grouped by pronunciation: Unvoiced Suffix, Voiced Suffix, and Vowelized Suffix. Students say the verbs aloud as they complete each activity and then advance to the written communication exercises.
In Section Two (irregular past tense verbs), students learn 80 irregular past tense verbs divided into four groups for easy acquisition and retention of verb spellings. Students then complete a host of word match-up, spelling, fill-in-the-blank pages, and more to help them learn and retain these more difficult action words.
Each group has pre-/posttests, lesson plans to chart progress, color photo-verb pages, and practice activities to establish correct use and spelling of the target verbs. Homework sheets inform parents of progress and encourage home practice to ensure carryover. Use the photos included in the workbook for oral practice of the verbs in isolation and in sentences. Yesterday’s Photo Verbs also includes Reward Pages for completion of each section, the Sentence Train activity for additional practice, and an Answer Key.
The program also contains two full-color, laminated, testing/teaching photo-word booklets in vibrant color. These spiral-bound booklets (5" x 3") help you administer pre-/posttests and teach the verb forms.
Great to use. Many different ways to present the verbs and to practice past tense
This verb kit has been great with my older language students.
I am so glad I found your website! Learning verbs has never been so easy. The information is complete, addressing regular and irregular past tense of verbs. Whether you are addressing a class or an individual, whether you are addressing a gen. ed. student or a special ed. student, this set contains the props and information necessary for success. I have just started home schooling our 7th grade son. He has Asperger's. Parts of speech were decidedly too difficult for him in the hectic class setting. However, with this book and me being one-on-one with him, he is having no problem understanding and learning. Thank you for offering great educational material!
great for baseline
I am so happy that I bought this. It comes with two picture books that can be used as an informal pre-test and post-test.
The booklets are a quick and easy way to baseline and re-test student awareness. The book provides great exercises for take-home practice and the response profiles are great for tracking students' progress. I like how the difficult-to-teach concept of irregular verbs is presented, definitely one of my best materials!
I love the pre-test option because it is great for getting baseline data! The book in full of fun and different activities to keep kids engaged. So easy to use!
I love Yesterday's Verbs because it separates regular from irregular past tense. In addition, it further breaks down regular past tense into voiced (d), voiceless (t) and (ed) endings. It is a great product. I like the new booklets too.
The workbook is an excellent resource and provides great introduction to both regular and irregular verbs. I personally have not used the spiral test booklet that came with the package. I love the written and verbal worksheet provided for use with my students.
I enjoy using Yesterday's Verbs...
