Irregular Verbs - Grade 3

(Seperate multiple email addresses with commas)

Most verbs are "regular" verbs. They add a "d" or "ed" when they change to the past tense. Some verbs do not follow these rules and therefore require the teacher to do some specific lessons to teach them. There are about 100 irregular verbs that we use in our everyday language. A full list of them can be found in Checking Your Grammar by Marvin Terban, Scholastic Guides and Reference Books. Please see below for a selection of Leveled Lessons for Below Level (basic), and/or On Level (median), and/or Above Level (competent) readers.

Teaching Tips

When you hear a child say "I catched the ball," he is actually using a grammar rule he knows is correct – putting "-ed" to represent a past action. He is not yet aware that "catch" is one of the verbs that changes to "caught" for the past tense. On your word wall or bulletin board, keep a running list of verbs that follow the rules and those that do not. One list may contain verbs such as, look, looked, jump, jumped, smile, smiled. The list of irregular verbs will contain verbs such as see, saw, come, came, catch, caught, give, gave.
