Use a limited number of cards for those students who find the number overwhelming.
Other alternative options are:
- Using the cards in a game of Concentration - or matching pairs.
- Ask students to find a pair and then post the pair into a box. Students with autism and learning difficulties often enjoy this style of game more, as they can see a clear finish line and once they've made a match, they've posted it and it's gone.
Students can create additional matches by creating their own set of past and present tense cards.
As a class game, students could work in table groups to brainstorm as many tricky past and present matches as possible and use them to challenge other table groups. Keep a final selection of the trickiest words that caused the most difficulty and use those as a new rotation game.
