The kit has 105 irregular verbs puzzle flashcards

This post contains 19 irregular verbs flashcards designed in yellow color. All these verbs have the letter t at the end of their Past Simple and Past Participle forms. Some verbs change the vowel sound in the middle of the verbs, like in sit – sat – sat, meet – met – met. Some verbs ending with d replace it with t, for example send - sent - sent, build - built - built. Sometimes t is just added to the whole word changing the pronunciation, like in deal – dealt – dealt, mean – meant – meant.

Here is the list of today's irregular verbs:

sit – sat – sat
meet – met – met
feel – felt – felt
smell – smelt – smelt
leave – left – left
send – sent – sent
spend – spent – spent
lend – lent – lent

As an ESL teacher I dedicate a number of lessons to this major holiday. The occasion is good for getting kids acquainted with Christmas traditions in English-speaking countries as well as for introduction of some useful English vocabulary to students. I have designed a teaching materials kit to help kids learn and memorize the vocabulary related to Christmas, celebration customs and the season of the year. In this first blog post dedicated to Christmas ESL materials I’d like to share my set of printable Christmas flashcards designed to introduce the vocabulary.
