  3. Explain that we use different verbs for action that is happening now (present) and action that happened in the past (past).

    Use lots of examples and ask the child to give others along the same line.

    Present:
    Jean has a doughnut.
    Jean and Joe have doughnuts.

    Past:
    Jean had a doughnut but ate it.
