When we write a verb in the past tense, we sometimes use –ed at the end of the verb.
Sometimes we have to double the consonant e.g.
stop becomes stopped (double p)
beg becomes begged (double g)
This usually happens when it is a short vowel sound.
If the word ends with a ‘y’ it changes like this:
cry becomes cried
carry becomes carried
