This is a great refresher for teaching the simple past tense.
Simple past tense verbs
Also called past simple or preterite, they show action that occurred and was completed at a particular time in the past. The simple past tense of regular verbs is marked by the ending -d or -ed. Irregular verbs have a variety of endings. The simple past is not accompanied by helping verbs. “The simple past tense is often used with an adverbial phrase that specifies a time in the past, such as yesterday, last year, (or) an hour ago,” according to “Complete English Grammar Rules.”
