  Grammar worksheets > Verbs > Verb tenses > Simple past > Verb To Be - Past Simple (was/were)
English worksheet: Verb To Be  -  Past Simple  (was/were) Verb To Be - Past Simple (was/were)

It´s very difficult to find a text with the Past Simple of verb to be. I´ve created this one. Students read the text and complete it with was or were. They are then exposed to the negative form and to the interrogative + wh-questions through the reading tasks: they answer the questions on the text and they ask questions for the answers. KEY included. You can also use this worksheet as remedial work and then give the student the key for correction. Wish you all a nice Wednesday. Hugs, mena :))
