we decided to stand up for a meaningful learning of these troublesome friends. We will analyse them, classify them depending on their form and group them in colours for a better memorization.
b) Group work: discussion to reach a consensus and stablish a given number of groups.
Our proposals were:
Same form for the three verbs
Same base but different past and past participle
Different base but same past and past participle
All three forms are different.
Students try to classify all the verbs in their workbook list using the grouping suggested. We will see how effective or defective our proposals were.
a) Group work: After adjusting any deficiencies, the class will list irregular verbs into separate pieces of paper according to verb behaviour and will assign one given colour to each group.
b) Individual work: Students will highlight each verb on workbook list using the chosen colour.
a) Each group will design a 3-dimensional flashcard to revise irregular verbs in the future.
