Verbs: Adding suffixes -ed, -d, -ied  - Simple Past Tense
This resource contains a fully editable, 70-slide PowerPoint lesson on on the rules for when and how to add the suffixes -ed, -d, -ied and doubling the last letter to make the simple past tense of verbs. The PowerPoint clearly explains and demonstrates the rules of how to change a verb to its simple past form.

The PowerPoint includes the following rules

- adding -d to words ending in e
- adding -ed to regular root verbs
- changing the 'y' to an 'i' and adding -ed
- doubling the last letter and adding -ed
- irregular plurals

The PowerPoint also contains a timed challenge activity in which pupils can use paper/whiteboards to write the simple past tense and a sorting activity in which pupils are required to decide which verb ending is appropriate.
