    Although nicely set out there are at least 3 words that do not follow the rule the sheet is explaining. 'hide' does not change to 'hided' but 'hid', 'ride' becomes 'rode' not 'rided'. Maybe use for a higher abiliy group and adapt the instructions so that they are aware there are some 'trick' words or simply tell them some are irregular - i.e. you can't just add 'ed'.
