Theory:

Past tense verbs refer to actions or events in the past. They can be regular verbs that end with a "d" or an "ed", or they can be irregular and change their spelling to show the past tense.
Example:
If you can add the ending "d" or "ed" to the word to make the past tense, then the verb is the regular verb.

addaddedwill add

Irregular verbs are verbs that don't take on the regular –d, -ed, or -ied spelling patterns of the past simple or past participle. But Irregular verbs usually change the spelling for their past tense form.
