Peter Griffin and The Giant Chicken: -ED Verb Endings (Id/T/D) – The Canswedi... Learning grammar is usually boring. (Maybe teaching it is a little boring at times too.)

Currently, I am teaching my 7th Grade students the correct pronunciation of past tense verbs with an -ed ending. I am getting a little tired of Kahoot-ing (is that a word?!) 6 Ways to Make Teaching Grammar Fun (I'm Serious) - WeAreTeachers I love grammar. But convincing my students to love grammar sometimes feels like trying to convince a bobcat to enjoy a nice, relaxing ice bath.
