Valentine's Day Past Tense Verbs

I created this product to help students practice verb tense.  Click on the picture above to see the product on Teachers Pay Teachers. So many of the kids I see really struggle with this. This activity is aligned with Common Core Standards for 3rd through 5th grade.

Heart Cards:
Cut out the heart cards, glue them on a backing and laminate.
To use as a Memory/Matching Game: place cards face down, mix them around. Players take turns flipping over two cards, saying the past tense version of each card.  If they say it correctly and get a match they take the cards.  If not turn the cards back over. Object of the game: be the player with the most pairs.
Alternate: When students are at a higher level they need to use the past tense version in a sentence.

Black Heart Game: Shuffle heart cards and place face down in one pile.  Player one chooses a card, reads the word and says the past tense version. Then it’s the next players turn.  If a player chooses a black heart, he has to give back one heart  but if he can say the past tense version of the verb on the black heart he can keep the black heart. When there are no more hearts the player with the most hearts wins.
Alternate: When students are at a higher level they need to use the past tense version in a sentence.

Sentence cards
Cut out the sentence card, glue it on a backing and laminate.
Thumbs Up or Down
Place cards in a pile or spread them out face down. Player 1 chooses a card and hands it to SLP. SLP reads the sentence and student gives thumbs up for a good verb and thumbs down for a bad verb. Student keeps card if he was correct, puts it at the bottom of the pile or back on the table if he was incorrect. Student with the most cards wins.
Alternate: Students read their own cards.
