9 Yep – it’s easy! To make negatives in past tense: 1.If the sentence has verb “to be” (was /were), just use “not” after (was not, were not, or wasn’t, weren’t) 2.If the sentence has another verb (regular or irregular), use did not (or didn’t) and change the verb to its original form (didn’t go, didn’t like, didn’t have, didn’t work, didn’t study)

10 Any Questions? If not, let’s practice!
