Understanding and using verbs in the past tense
Why is this important?
Developing the grammatical structures relating to past tense allows children to talk about an event that has happened in the past and contrast this with the here and now. This increases the range of language use and also allows children to talk about things outside the here and now.
What to do
Adult: ‘What did you do?’
Child: ‘Jumped/danced/ hopped’, etc.
