Past and Present Participle Verb Popsicles

We created paper popsicles to help us remember past and present participles (popsicles) for verbs. One each popsicle was a flap at the top. For the past participles they wrote the helping verbs under the flap at the top. Then they wrote the correct form of the past tense verb as it would be used with the helping verb (like "smiled" to be used with the helping verb "had"). For the present participle popsicles, there was also a flap to the right of the words where the ending "ing" was written. So for those words, they wrote several present tense verbs and then "ing" under the flap. Then they wrote the appropriate helping verb under the flap at the top (is, are, am, etc.)
