Thanks for this. I’ve been teaching high school for four decades and kids never used to have this problem. Now, there are LED (light-emitting diodes) that they’re more familiar with so they figure they can’t use the same thing for a past tense. I’d like to find that elementary teacher who’s telling them this. I thing he or she is also the one telling them that to make ANY plural, you just add apostrophe-S.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
