Are there any ESL teachers out there?  I am pondering how to teach simple past tense to elementary school children (3rd-5th graders).  We will be using regular verbs (those to which "-ed" is added to create the past tense).  How much should I teach the "ed" rule, and how much should I simply give examples and have the children try it out and use transcribed conversations to pick it up?  Are there any skits, songs, TPR activities, or other techniques you would recommend?  Many thanks!
