Post Past tense !
So many of my kids use 'did' and present tense verbs instead of past tense.
(I did look tv yesterday and I did see fireworks! They did light up and I did be a little scared...)This dirves me crazy! I wonder where it comes from? Any ideas on how to keep that under control? Of course, so many common verbs are irrigular so asking them to add 'ed' almost never comes up. Chants maybe??? I do modify and repeat back to them their sentences and often ask them to repeat the modified one to me if there is time but there must be a more interesting way.
