If you feel that your teaching of Grammar is teacher-led, take a step back and introduce the past tenses through an inductive approach that will actively involve your students and make their learning more memorable. Encourage your students to take responsibility for their own  learning and discover the rules themselves. It probably goes without saying but it’s  advisable not to introduce all of them at once if the students are introduced to past tenses for the first time.
