Past tenses: tell a story

Directions: You will tell a story to the class. You will start by talking about what you used to do when you were younger. Then, you will tell the class about something interesting that happened while you were doing the thing that you used to do.

Example: When I was younger I used to play field hockey with my neighbors. We would play in their front yard. Their dog would always chase us around and try to catch the hockey ball. One time, while we were playing hockey, I fell down and hurt my arm.

1. You will speak for at least 2 minutes.

2. You must use the simple past, the past continuous, “used to” and “would.”

You can brainstorm here:

Part 2: One time ___________________________________________________
