Provide your students with a digital learning activity to practise using past, present, and future tense verbs.

Past, Present and Future Tense Practice

All verbs are anchored in time through tense. This interactive drag-and-drop activity enables students to practise using past, present and future tense verbs in context. Each slide provides the opportunity for students to interact with moveable and clickable pieces to determine the appropriate verb needed to maintain the consistency of tense.

Multiple Applications for Verb Tense Activity

This versatile grammar resource can be used in your classroom in a variety of ways.

Independent activity

Allow more-confident students to work through the resource independently by assigning the activity in Google classroom. Ensure that the students complete the activity in Edit mode, not in Presentation mode.

Targeted group activity

Work on the resource as a targeted support activity with a group of less-confident learners. Read the sentences together, then discuss the three possible options. Guide students in their thinking by asking prompting questions related to their understanding of tense.

Whole-class lesson 

Project the presentation onto your interactive whiteboard and work through the slides as a whole-class lesson or review. You might like to provide your students with mini-whiteboards so they can write down what they think is the correct response, then flip their boards to reveal their answer to the rest of the class.
