  • 1. Irregular Verbs Mini Lesson By: Frank Barbrie
  • 2. Review…PAST TENSE
    • A verb tense used to express an action or a condition that occurred in or during the past
    • Past tense show actions or events at a specific time in the past.
    • The actions or events START or STOP at a specific time in the past.
  • 3. Review
    • We learned in previous lessons…to change a regular verbs to the past tense we add “ed” to the end of the verb…for example:
    • Present tense: I play football everyday.
    • Past tense : I play (ed) football yesterday.
  • 4. NOTE TO REMEMBER : There are no rules that exist to form the past tense for irregular verbs.
    • Irregular verbs don’t follow a pattern in the simple past tense like regular verbs do…they are very different. You can’t simply add “ed” to the verb to show action in the past tense.
    • It is necessary to recognize and memorize these verbs .
    • Sentences with irregular verbs (present tense) .
    • I run to school.
    • I run in the morning.
    • I run five miles everyday.
    • I runn(ed) to school. (This is incorrect) because run is an irregular verb.
    • Sentences with irregular verbs in the past tense (past tense)
    • I ran to school.
    • I ran in the morning.

    • Notice: No “ed” was put at the end of the verb.
