Help build verb knowledge with these three past tense cloze paragraphs. There are two paragraphs in simple past and one paragraph that requires both simple past and past progressive.
I prefer activities that have a context. Many grammar practice activities are numbered sentences that don’t connect. I created these paragraphs so the use of the past tense could be viewed in the larger context of a paragraph. The more we can contextualize grammar, the more learners can see how language and verbs function together in a context, and in my opinion, it’s more interesting.
