Mark's Note: I start teaching the past tense by asking the question, "Did you ... yesterday?" and the students answer simply "yes" or "no". Then, I move to asking "What did you do yesterday?" With that, I use the regular verbs explanation first, having the students answer, "I watched TV."or "I played baseball." After they are used to it, I introduce irregular verbs slowly, building up to the mixed set. Later, I use the irregular verbs only cards to focus on those hard to remember irregular verbs.
