I’ve been working on regular and irregular past tense verb with one of my clients. So I made these worksheets for us to use. Firstly, I introduced the rule of regular past tense (‘ed), then we discussed exceptions to the rules. After a few sessions of practice, I read these sentences aloud to see if my client could determine which sentence “sounded” correct. Once I determined that he could “hear” what “sounded” correct in my speech, then I gave him an opportunity to read each sentence quietly to himself and determine which he thought was correct (this was done during a different therapy session). After each sheet was completed, he read each sentence aloud to see if any of his answers changed. This way I was able to determine the following: 1) Does he notice correct/incorrect grammar in my speech?, 2) Does he notice correct/incorrect grammar when he is reading silently?, 3) Does reading aloud change/improve his ability to identify correct/incorrect grammar?. Then I compared his performance of this activity to his own conversational grammar. This way I knew which areas still needed to be targeted.
Feel free to use these sheets any way you wish. They could also be good independent or homework tasks for students.
