Irregular Verbs (Grade 4)
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.
