Halloween Fun with Verb Tenses
The fun didn't stop there! Every correct answer earned them a big or small pumpkin to toss into a pumpkin bucket. Of course, I found the bucket and bags of small pumpkins at the dollar store, so the entire game cost four dollars. At the end of the lesson, students decided if they wanted the bucket "near" or "far" to toss in pumpkins. I used this lesson with my first graders, who were quite challenged but entertained by the activity. My third graders were more accurate and they too enjoyed the game. Follow these links to a blank page to create your own lesson and 16 mixed past, present, and future flashcards ready to go for your lesson! Simply print, cut, and fold each flashcard along the dotted line. I stapled mine shut along the bottom of the pumpkin so you can hardly see the staple.
