-ed Sounds

ESL EFL Reading, Writing and Pronunciation Activity - Elementary - 25 Minutes

Here is an entertaining worksheet activity to help students practice the -ed sounds of past simple regular verbs. Each student is given a copy of the worksheet. Students begin by completing a conversation with regular verbs from a box on their worksheet in the past simple tense. After the correct answers have been checked with the class, the students are divided into pairs. The pairs then read the conversation together. Students then look at the rules associated with -ed sounds of past simple regular verbs. Students follow the rules and put the past simple regular verbs from the conversation into the correct category, according to their pronunciation. The pairs then read the conversation again using the correct pronunciation of the -ed sounds.

Regular Connect 4

ESL EFL Reading, Listening and Pronunciation Activity - Elementary - 25 Minutes

In this fun teaching activity, students play a game of Connect 4 where they decide which -ed sounds past simple regular verbs have and try to pronounce them correctly. The students are divided into groups of three. Two students play the game and one student judges the players' answers. The two players are given a copy of game board 1. The student acting as judge is given a copy of the game board 1 answers. The aim of the game is to get four squares in a row, either vertically, horizontally or diagonally, while at the same time trying to stop the other player from getting four in a row.  The first player starts by choosing one of the sentence squares. The player looks at the underlined past simple regular verb in the sentence and decides which -ed sound it has, i.e. / t / / d / / ɪd /. The player then reads the sentence, pronouncing the verb appropriately. The student acting as judge listens to the pronunciation of the past simple regular verb and checks the answer on their card. If the pronunciation is correct, the player writes their name in the square. It's then the other player's turn to choose a square and read a sentence. If the player mispronounces the verb, play passes to the other student. The first player to get four in a row wins the game. If no one manages to do this, the player with the most squares wins. The group is then given a copy of game board 2 and the students swap roles, giving the student who acted as judge a chance to play.

Sounds and Spelling

ESL EFL Pronunciation and Spelling Activity - Elementary - 25 Minutes

In this rewarding worksheet activity, students play a game where they pronounce and spell the past simple form of present simple regular verbs. The students are divided into pairs (A and B) and each student is given a corresponding worksheet. Student A begins by looking at the first present simple regular verb on their worksheet and deciding which -ed sound the verb has in its past simple form (i.e. / t /, / d /, or / id /). The student then says the past simple regular verb aloud, pronouncing the -ed sound appropriately. Student B tells their partner if they are right or wrong. If Student A is right, he or she wins a point. Student A then spells the verb in the past simple for an extra point, paying close attention to regular verbs ending in 'e' and 'y' as well as verbs ending with one vowel and one consonant. Student B writes Student A's score next to the answer on their worksheet. Then it's Student B's turn to pronounce and spell the past simple form of the first regular verb on their worksheet. This process continues until all the verbs have been completed. The student with the highest score at the end of the game wins. When everyone has finished, any difficult pronunciations or spellings are reviewed with the class.
