Learning Past Simple Verbs

Process

20101222030222yXuqu.jpg

1. Watch the video resource # 1 & #2 to learn how to form past simple verbs.

2. Practice the regular verbs form in resources # 3 & 4.

3. Develop the irregular verbs activities in resources # 5 & 6.


4. Listen to the song "LAST KISS" by Pearl Jam and read the lyric. Then, underline all the past verbs you find in order to classify them in regular or irregular. Don't forget to write the infinitive form of each one. You can look at the sample below:


LAST KISS (Pearl Jam)

Oh where, oh where, can my baby be?
The Lord TOOK her away from me
She's gone to heaven, so I've got to be good
So I can see my baby when I leave this world

We were out on a date in my daddy's car

We hadn't driven very far
There in the road, straight ahead
A car was stalled, the engine was dead

I couldn't stop, so I 
SWERVED to the right
I'll never forget the sound that night
The screamin' tires, the bustin' glass
The painful scream that I heard last

When I woke up the rain was pourin' down

There were people standing all around
Something warm rollin' through my eyes
But somehow I found my baby that night
I lift her head, she looked at me and said,
"Hold me darling, just a little while"
I held her close, I kissed her our last kiss
I found the love that I knew I would miss.

Well now she's gone

even though I hold her tight
I lost my love, my life, that night.

Example:

- REGULAR: swerved (swerve)

- IRREGULAR: took (take)


5. Finally, listen to "VIVA LA VIDA" by Coldplay and complete the lyric with the following verbs. All of them are in the infinitive form, so you have to write them in past.


rule (x2) - close - give - blow - discover - be (x3) - hold - shatter - use (x3)


VIVA LA VIDA (Coldplay)

I __________ rule the world
Seas would rise when I __________  the word
Now in the morning I sweep alone
Sweep the streets I __________ to own
I __________ to roll the dice
Feel the fear in my enemy's eyes
Listen as the crowd would sing:
"Now the old king is dead! Long live the king!"
One minute I __________ the key
Next the walls __________   CLOSED on me
And I __________ that my castles stand
Upon pillars of sand, pillars of sand

I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing

Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason I can not explain
Once you know there __________ never, never an honest word
That was when I __________ the world

It was the wicked and wild wind

  __________ down the doors to let me in.
  __________ windows and the sound of drums
People could not believe what I'd become
Revolutionaries Wait
For my head on a silver plate
Just a puppet on a lonely string
Oh who would ever want to be king?

I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing

Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason I can not explain
I know Saint Peter will call my name
Never an honest word
And that __________ when I __________ the world
