How do we form the simple past tense?



English has two types of
    verbs in the past:
           -regular
           -irregular
Let’s read the following list of past tense
verbs….. Which are regular and which are
irregular?

walked       regular
studied      regular
taught       irregular
gave         irregular
became            irregular
cried        regular
lived        regular
did               irregular
Regular verbs are verbs that end with -ed
Simple form verbs:   Past tense verbs:
walk                 walked


study                studied


cry                  cried


live                 lived
Rules for adding –ed:
Add –ed to most verbs
Drop the “e” and add “ed” to verbs that end with
 “e” (smile= smiled).
Change the “y” to “i” and add –ed to verbs that
 end with a consonant and “y” (carry= carried,
 study= studied).
Double the consonant and add –ed to verbs that
 end with one vowel and one consonant ( drag=
 dragged, stop= stopped).
Irregular verbs are verbs that don’t end in
–ed……..
 Sometimes with irregular
 past tense verbs you
 have to change the vowel
 to make the verb past
 tense:

become            became
give             gave
drive            drove
forget           forgot
Other irregular verbs have a different kind
of change…..you need to memorize
these!
teach      taught


bring      brought


leave      left


hear       heard


buy
           bought
Why do we use past tense verbs?

TO TELL THAT AN ACTION IS
COMPLETED!!!!!! FINISHED!!! OVER!!!
PRONOUNCIATION OF REGULAR
VERBS……
 The –ed ending in English has three
 different sounds:
           t: walked, talked, jumped
           d: played, loved, answered
           id: invited, waited
           decided....
           *With –id sounding words,
           there is another syllable!
How can you practice past tense verbs?

Phonemically (word sorts)
Bingo!
Modeling
Survey says……
Nancy Fetzer………

Direct instruction + muiltiple opportunities to
  practice = Skill mastery!!!!!
