Verbs are words which usually show action or indicates what someone or something is doing. It is often called a 'doing' word.
Example: Dogs chase their tails.
Verbs have tenses. Tenses indicate whether the action is happening now, has happened in the past, or will happen in the future.
Present tense verbs indicate the action is happening now,
in the present.
Past tense verbs indicate the action has already happened, in the past. Usually, past tense verbs end in -ed.
Example: She sniffed the pepper, and sneezed.
If a verb ends in -e, just add a -d to make it past tense.
Below, write the present or past tense of the verb.
Some verbs are irregular. This means they become completely different words when used in the past tense.
Example: I grow vegetables in our garden.
Last year I grew corn and potatoes.
