  Grammar worksheets > Verbs > Verb tenses > Past simple/past continuous > Simple Past or Past Continuous? - Inductive Approach
Simple Past or Past Continuous?  -  Inductive Approach Simple Past or Past Continuous? - Inductive Approach

A 2-page worksheet in which students are led to infer some rules of use and form followed by 4 different exercises. Students read some sentences and complete the tables with the Simple Past and the Past Continuous(affirmative, negative and interrogative forms). After remembering some spelling rules as well as the use of both tenses, they do some exercises with an increasing level of complexity: matching questions and answers; crossing the wrong one out; filling in the gaps; answering personal questions. Wish you all a great week. Hugs, mena:))))
