Simple Past Grammar Diary - Regular & Irregular Verbs (with Pronunciation Activity)
This worksheet was created as a fun way to introduce or review the simple past. Students must fill in the present form of the verb and then the simple past form. The activity is meant to resemble a mead notebook, with some fun sketches to brighten, an otherwise boring, grammar lecture. When I used this worksheet, I had my students put their hands on their throats and make a sound (eg. v vs. f, b vs. p, g vs. k, etc). If it was "voiced," their vocal chords vibrate and if it's "unvoiced," their vocal chords do not vibrate. I had them make different sounds and tell if it was voiced or unvoiced and then look at the rule on the page to determine how a word would be pronounced. Then we went through the list of provided words to determine each word's particular pronunciation. Please feel free to give feedback.  If you think this could be improved, tell me! :)
