When we write a verb in the past tense, we sometimes use –ed at the end of the verb.

e.g.

walked

laughed

 

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

 

YOUR TASK:

Can you find any words that follow these rules? Make a list of them to show to your class.
