Three rules for ED endings
Many verbs that are in the past tense end in ED. (Example: Today I walk, yesterday I walked)
If a word ends in an unvoiced consonant, when adding ED, just add an Unvoiced T
Today I jump, yesterday I jumped. (pronounced jump T)
Today I walk, yesterday I walked. (pronounced walk T)
If a word ends in a voiced consonant, add a Voiced D
Today I rub, yesterday I rubbed. (pronounced rub-D)

I poured the milk.
