Past Tense Verb Worksheets
EnglishHints’ Past Tense Verb Worksheets offers students multiple ways to practice the past tense of regular and the most common irregular verbs. Much of the practice is in context (conversations or reading.)

Most of the worksheets are simple enough for students to use on their own for homework or extra practice (or to give to early finishers or to leave for a sub.) Most games are for the whole class, but the memory cards can be used in a center, for a few early finishers or even as a solitaire activity

The packet includes 18 pages of worksheets and game ideas (plus answer keys) to learn and practice regular and irregular verbs in the simple and continuous past tenses. Over 50 of the most common irregular past-tense verbs are practiced in sentences and again as gap-fills in longer text-- most of them at least three to four times.
