Was Were Worksheet and PowerPoint presentation

(TESOL Worksheets--Was and Were)
[This is a worksheet combined with PowerPoint slides (for a classroom in which I had use of a projector) to explain the difference between was and were, and practice.  
This was designed for young children.  I designed it after using the was/were game linked to in the previous post, when it was clear my students didn't understand the distinction, and were just making random guesses.  The intent of this worksheet/PowerPoint was to explain the distinction as clearly as I could, and drill it.  It's very dry and boring, and I regret that I wasn't creative enough to make this more interesting, but it did seem to do the job.  They (more or less) got it after this.  The Worksheet is below, and on Google (drive, docs, pub).  PowerPoint is also on Google (drive, slides, pub), and embedded below.  The worksheet was cut into 3 different parts, and handed out to students in sections rather than all at once.
None of the images on the PowerPoint slides are my own, and were all taken from a Google Images search. ]
