Simple Past Tense Cloze Paragraphs

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.
