Lately, I have a lot of little friends working on regular past tense verbs.  Usually, its the irregular past tense verbs that seem to take up my caseload, but not this time!  So I wanted to share a little tip with you on how you can help your kiddos stop using the dreaded ‘eded’.


I have found most of my kids need a visual to help them understand that ‘ed’ is only needed once at the end of the word and makes a single sound  instead of them trying to put both sounds at the end of the word.  Since the visual I use is laminated, I can use a dry eraser marker to show them what sounds ‘ed’ can make.  You can check out this visual pack HERE if you want.  Another idea is to use dry erase markers on your table. I write ‘-ed’  and then draw arrows to a lowercase ‘d’ and ‘t’.  If my kids are readers I will write example words next to the letters.   This puts the cues right in front of the student without them having to look up to the board each time for help and possibly getting distracted.

Hope that helps!
