I'll send your post to our Spanish expert, SraJMcGin.
First of all you need to learn how to form the Preterit for both regular and irregular verbs.
yo hablé, tú hablaste, él/ella/ usted habló,
nosotros, -as hablamos, vosotros, -as
hablásteis, ellos/ellas/ustedes hablaron
yo comí, tú comiste, él/ella/usted comió,
nosotros, -as comimos, vosotros, -as comísteis, ellos/ellas/ustedes comieron
yo viví, tú viviste, él/ella/usted vivió,
nosotros, -as vivimos, vosotros, -as vivísteis, ellos/ellas/ustedes vivieron
NOTE; the accents, color-code the endings so they stand out; that makes them easier to memorize.
Some irregulars that I see you have.
ir/ser (note that they will be identical, so usually it's the "a" that goes with "ir" that will identify that one.)
yo fui, tú fuiste, él/ella/usted fue, nosotros, -as fuimos, vosotros, -as fuisteis, ellos/ellas/ustedes fueron
Note: these are unstressed, or, in other words, have no accent marks.
Now, look at the subject (which is not stated above) = yo, tú, él, ella, usted, nosotros, -as, vosotros, -as, ellos, ellas, ustedes) in the Present Tense and shift that to the Preterit. Be SURE it is the same subject!
Now, you try them and I'll be back to check.

OK. I've waited all I can. I will not be back unless MsSue sends me another note.
