    •  Regular verbs are not on the list. These verbs follow certain rules to form the past. They add “ed” to the verb to form the past. ex. Listen (present) – listened (past) look (present) – looked (past)

Study - studied try – tried2. If the verb ends in “-y” but before it has a vowel, you add “ed” without changing anything ex. Play - played
    •  If the verb ends in “-e” you only add “-d” ex. Move - moved Sometimes you have to double the last letter(double the consonant when you have a consonantafter a short stressed vowel at the end of theword) ex. Stop – stopped plan - planned
