Archive for the ‘Irregular Past Tense Verbs’ Category

copy-of-mombradquiltPreviously, I wrote a post on how to make flash cards for iPods and mobile phones that have photo browsing capability. Since then I have continued experimenting with this and have added another set of cards to my and my students’ stash. (I took the term “stash” from my mother. She and other quilters use it to refer to the myriad of different types of fabrics that they keep in drawers and cupboards. From my perspective, a quilter’s stash is a treasure and the bigger the stash, the better. I think this might apply to mobile flash cards as well!)

I made the latest set using PowerPoint. These cards involve a simple review of the irregular past tense. The first card is the base form of the verb and the second card is the irregular past tense form. I think I prefer this way of making portable flashcards to using MS Paint (the method I used my first time around) because with PowerPoint, I can also put the cards on Slideshare where students who do not have  iPods or mobile phones with photo browsing capability can  access them. The cards are simple, but if you would like to use them with your students, please feel free. You can down load the cards for mobile devices that review irregular past tense verbs or view them at Slideshare (Flash Cards for Irregular Past Tense Verbs at Slideshare).
