Demonstration Continued • Partner groups will be provided the memory game cards with irregular past and present verbs. • The students will take turns matching the card pairs. • When they have mastered the beginning irregular verb card pairs, they will be given the advanced irregular verb card pairs.
Proceedure • Concentration. Place the cards in rows in front of the players. Separate the cards in the two categories, past and present. Each card will be labeled past or present. • Student 1 picks up one card and turns it over in place, and says the name of the verb. He then tries to find a matching card from the other group. He turns over the card and reads the verb. And if it is a matching pair, keeps the two cards.
Procedure Continued • If it is a matching pair the player gets an extra turn. • If the cards do not match, the cards are turned over in the same place and player 2 takes his turn. • The game ends when all the pairs have been matched.
