Verb  Tense  

Past  tense  verbs  show  actions  that  have  happened  before  the  current  time.      

In  order  to  show  past  tense,  just  add  ed  to  most  verbs.    However,  you  will  need  to  change  

the  spelling  of  some  regular  verbs  before  you  add  ed.  

• Rule  1:    For  verbs  that  end  in  e,  drop  the  e  and  add  ed.  

Use   Used      
Untie       Untied    
Bake     Baked  
Decide     Decided    
 

• Rule  2:    If  the  verb  ends  in  a  consonant  and  y,  change  the  y  to  i  and  add  ed.  

Try     Tried    
Study     Studied    
Tidy     Tidied    
Cry     Cried    
 

• Rule  3:    One-­‐syllable  verbs  that  end  in  one  vowel  followed  by  one  consonant  need  to  
                                             have  the  consonant  doubled  and  then  add  ed.  
 
Plan     Planned    
Tip     Tipped    
Travel     Travelled    
Refer     Referred    
 

• Rule  4:    Some  verbs  are  irregular  verbs.      You  do  not  add  ed  to  irregular  verbs  in    
     the  past  tense.    These  verbs  do  not  follow  a  pattern.    Some  of  these  verbs    
     include  the  following  verbs.  
 
Become     Became  
Buy     Bought    
Go     Went    
Sing       Sang
