I am now, after more than 5 decades in the work force, officially semi-retired. New hobby: gardening. Old hobby restarting: table tennis. I still have some classes to teach and materials to design, many of which I will continue to share with the dear members of ESLPs. You may come across my materials on Facebook and my blog.

Simple Past Simple 1 with keys
When you introduce your pupils to the past simple you have also to teach them the spelling rule related to single syllable words where the final consonant is usually doubled after a short vowel.
