Printable Flashcards to Learn 92 Irregular Verbs

Irregular verbs are considered to be one of the most challenging English grammar aspects especially for non-native speakers who start learning the language. This is why I have to return to the subject of irregular verbs now and then to help my students retain all the verb forms in their memories. Although I have plenty of grammar books, worksheets and other materials such as printable puzzles for teaching irregular verbs, there seems to be never enough resources for this incredibly hard part of the English language. It is especially true when it comes to teaching English to small kids who are very reluctant to memorize boring stuff. So, trying to make the process of learning irregular verbs more fun, I have designed a set of colorful printable flashcards.

I have created irregular verbs flashcards that incorporate the base form, simple past and past participle of the verbs along with relevant pictures helping form the association between words and their meaning. Since the majority of people are visual learners, I thought the visually appealing flashcards would help me effectively teach even the most boring grammar stuff to young students. Teachers using these flashcards can also cut off the simple past and past participle part to use it for some matching activities in the classroom. The flashcards are rather large and can be easily printed on A4 paper sheets or bigger formats if needed.

My collection of images allowed me to create flashcards to learn 92 irregular verbs. Here is a list of all of them: be, beat, become, bite, blow, break, bring, build, burn, buy, catch, choose, come, cost, cut, dig, dive, draw, dream, drink, drive, eat, fall, feed, feel, fight, find, fly, forbid, forget, freeze, get, give, go, grow, hang, have, hear, hide, hit, hold, hurt, know, lead, learn, leave, lend, let, lie, lose, make, mean, meet, pay, put, read, ride, ring, rise, run, say, see, sell, send, sew, shake, shine, shoot, show, sing, sink, sit, sleep, slide, smell, speak, spend, spread, stand, steal, sweep, swim, swing, take, tell, think, throw, understand, wake, wear, win, write.

I will be publishing my irregular verbs flashcards on my blog in the form images. My fellow EFL and ESL teachers and parents are welcome to use them for English classes. If you need high resolution printer-ready PDF version of this set of flashcards, you are welcome to buy it here.
