My First TPT and it's absolutely FREE!

I did it.

I truly, finally did it.

I joined the ranks of so many of you.

 I made a TPT page. . . or do you call it store?

I think I have it all set up correctly and I think it looks normal. . . so I'd love to have someone take a look at it and see what you think. Of course it's cheap, inexpensive.  . . no, it's just FREE!

It's an activity on matching verbs to their other tenses. Click HERE to go to it.  . . Since this is my first one on TPT, I'd love for you to let me know if the directions are clear or if there is something missing. Each girl has a verb under her. The boys all have connecting verb tenses, but one of them is spelled incorrectly. Once you copy them, laminate them, then cut them out, they will be shuffled all together. The students must first sort them into words that go together, then decide which one should be discarded because it is either not spelled correctly or that it doesn't make sense.

I used the grapics from

And the background from Corinna at Surfinthroughsecond. She has these wonderful blue stars, stripes, and polka dots. She also made a set like this in reds. Check out her work. . . she's purdy dern good at what she does!

So check out this freebie. . . and just TAKE it! GRAB it, DOWNLOAD it, and then don't forget to let me know what you think. . .

Muah to all of you for inspiring me to do all I can to stimulate the minds of my students.

  3. It looks great Patty! I am so happy to see that someone used them. I grabbed it from your store, and I am now following you:) thanks so much for the shout out:)

  4. Congrats on jumping in to the TpT world. I went to go preview, but TpT was down for maintenance. I'll try again in the morning, but I'm sure it is fabulous. I like that in the example you showed above there is a wrong choice for students to identify.
