D. FOCUS: Sentences with two clauses: one with the past continuous tense and one with the simple past tense. The past continuous tense describes an action or situation that was taking place when something else happened, and the simple past tense describes the action or event that happened. We use when before the simple past part of the sentence. Either part of the sentence (simple past or past continuous) can come first, but if the sentence begins with “When,” a comma is used between the two parts. EXPANSION 1: Write sentences with two clauses using “past continuous” and “simple past” on strips of paper. Cut the strips into pieces and have students put them together to form sentences. EXPANSION 2: Use a timeline to demonstrate when events may occur.
