Part of the confusion students experience when first learning the preterit vs. imperfect tense is the interpretation of the idea they are being asked to complete. In this handout, students are able to see the what the sentence is trying to say in English, and then the rest of the sentence with only the verb to write. This can be very helpful as we explain to our students how to choose which one to use. This is also in the context of 4B vocabulary. Includes an answer key.
