Topic: Never use two past tenses simultaneously
Posted: Sunday, May 25, 2014 4:33:51 PM
I think I know what they were talking about when they said never use past tense simultaneously. My 5th graders do it all the time and I am trying to find a way to fix it. An example sentence:
"He did not came." What they are trying to say is "He did not come," but they seem to overemphasize the past tense when it is not needed. I would love to find out the reason for this to help me in correcting it! My students are 95% EL Learners with Spanish as their first language.
