English Grammar Worksheets

These English grammar worksheets provide a variety of practice exercises with verb tenses, sentence structures, parts of speech, and common errors. Most practice is in context, using conversations or short paragraphs rather than bare lists to learn. Worksheet packets also include games and other activities to learn and review the more difficult structures. (See also Printable ESL Classroom Games.)

Past Tense Verb Worksheet Packet

cover image of the Past Tense Verb Worksheets packet, with title

This 18-page packet (plus answer keys, memory game back options, and bingo template- 30 pages total) offers students multiple ways to practice the past tense of regular and the most common irregular verbs. Much of the practice is in context (conversations or reading.)

Most of the worksheets are simple enough for students to use on their own for homework or extra practice (or to give to early finishers or to leave for a sub.) Most games are for the whole class, but the memory cards can be used in a center, for a few early finishers or even as a solitaire activity

The packet includes worksheets and game ideas to learn and practice regular and irregular verbs in the simple and continuous past tenses. Over 50 of the most common irregular past-tense verbs are practiced in sentences and again as gap-fills in longer text-- most of them at least three to four times.
