Product Description
On this 1 page worksheet, students are prompted to fill in the correct form of a verb (either past continuous or past simple) to complete each paragraphs. Each paragraph (7 total) includes at least one instance of each verb form, prompting students to grapple with the possibilities as they work. For each blank, the worksheet provides the infinitive form of the verb (ex: take, leave, run, etc.).

The best part is that the written content is actually really entertaining and can prompt great conversation or extension activities. Each paragraph summarizes a "Stella Awards" recipient (examples of outrageous lawsuits in which the plaintiffs caused their own problems). In my ESOL class, this opened up great civics vocabulary around legality! The students thought the paragraphs were hilarious and asked for more!

Some of the blanks could lend themselves to a past perfect verb form, which would make this sheet a good transition exercise to introducing that verb form.
