100 Irregular Verbs
« on: April 21, 2008, 02:42:39 PM »
This isn't actually a lesson plan but just a printout I made. Since middle schoolers are currently studying past tense and past participles I decided to make a list of the 100 most common irregular verbs with the Japanese translation. The idea is that this is something they can keep with them and use as a reference for as long as they study English. I didn't include words such as "forgo" and "forgive" because those kinds of words follow the patterns of "go" and "went" respectively.

The formatting isn't so great because I'm pretty hopeless when it comes to using the Japanese version of Word. Please let me know if you see any problems, especially problems with the Japanese translation.

Also, there are actually only 98 or so words because I cut a few out at the last minute. Don't tell anyone.

Heh, I actually made a chart just like this one over spring  break for my kids.  It includes a chart for pronouns as well as charts explaining (in Japanese) how to conjugate "be," past perfect tense, and present progressive tense.  I'm making sure every student I teach gets this, as well as a chart for regular verbs

Does anyone want me to upload that here as well?

It's organized by its pattern of conjugation (put-put-put vs. sing, sang, sung), and shaded to make it easier to tell which words are different and which words are the same.

The charts for pronouns and the past perfect and present progressive tenses are on the bottom of the third page.

I also have a 4-page list of regular verbs with a chart on the back showing regular past, past negative and past question.  Want that, too?

Kevin and Q thanks so much for these. You guys are awesome! I hope my 3rd years will like these. Some words they don't know but they love learning new ways to insult each other, so this will be great!

Good Job! Karma!

Haha, one mistake on mine...

Instead of "read read read" I typed "lead lead lead". I've been in Japan too long...

Ok, here's a chart of regular verbs (haven't counted, but I think it's 200+) in alphabetical order without the Japanese translations.  The last page has a chart showing how to put simple sentences into past tense, past negative and past question.  I forgot to include a Japanese explanation of verbs that end in 'e,' and I didn't mention the doubling of consonants, but that's easy enough to go over in class.

This is 4 pages long, so I like to make double-sided copies.

Q, I can't read the kanji on the last box, but what tense is it referring to?

O   I have eaten.
O   You have eaten.
O   Has he eaten?

X?  We had eaten.
X?  You had not eaten.
X?  Had they eaten?

I don't get it.
There.  Now everything goes together.

How to use the past participle:

__________Present Perfect_______________Past Perfect________
Statement: I have eaten.......... We had eaten.
Negative: You have not eaten... You had not eaten.
Question: Has he eaten?............Had they eaten?
