Verbs – Past Tense of Regular Verbs
We talk about verbs being in the present tense when they tell us what is
happening now. For example – I am walking my dog. When we talk
about what happened yesterday, the verb is written in the past tense
– Yesterday I walked my dog. When we make regular verbs into the
past tense, we add ‘ed’. For example – walk becomes walked.
