VERBS LESSON PLAN

 

Materials

  • Verbs Lesson - Use the worksheets for your lesson plan, or use student version as lesson supplement.

  • Verbs Worksheets - Printable teaching verbs worksheets.

 

Procedure

Teachers -- write these sentences on the board, and then have the students try to figure out the action words.

 

Definition: A verb is an action word. A verb tells what the subject does, is, or what happens to it. (Ask: what is subject doing? Answer: a verb.)

Example 1
"Kayla smiled at the teacher."
smiled - tells what the subject (Kayla) did

Example 2
"Sam listens to the teacher."
listens - tells what subject (Sam) is doing.

Example 3
"Maria was lost in the woods."
was lost - tells what happens to subject (Maria).

Teachers -- to reinforce understanding of basic verb identification, have students write their own sentences on the board and pick out the noun (previous lessons) and verb in each sentence.


Many sentences have more than one verb. Can you find three verbs in this sentence?

"Kyle runs with the football and shouts to his teammates while he plays outside."

Helping Verbs

Some words help express action. These are called helping verbs:
is swimming have brought was running was going
does ride will throw had broken has carried


Teachers -- these are verbs that are difficult to identify and correctly use. Tell students to pay special attention to these types of verbs.

 

Verb Tense

Present Tense: verb shows what is happening now.
Ex. Trina reads a book.
Past Tense: a verb showing that something already happened.
Ex. Trina read a book.

Example of present tense verbs:
Today I dance.

Jessica dances with Kent.
Jessica dances with me.

We all dance together.

 

Example of past tense verbs: (change from present to past by adding -ed:)
