Warm Up-- Reviewing Prior Knowledge List and explain all definitions and grammatical rules that deal with VERBS.
Today’s Learning Goal I will be able to identify correct verb usage by taking notes and completing a practice worksheet. I will know I’ve met my goal when I can explain correct verb usage using complete sentences.
Verbs and Tense Consistency When two or more actions are being described in a sentence, all VERBS or VERB PHRASES describing the same time period must be written in the same tense – Past – Past Participle – Present – Present Participle – Future
Example of Verb Tense Consistency Incorrect: While I waited for the movie to begin, I was realizing that I’d forgotten all about my sister’s ballet recital. Correct: While I waited for the movie to begin I realized that I’d forgotten all about my sister’s ballet recital.

Subject Verb Agreement Grammatical rule stating that the VERB must agree in number with its subject. Example: – The elephant trumpets for peanuts.(singular subject) – The elephants trumpet for peanuts.(plural subject) Subject=1 elephant Subject= more than 1 elephant
Do I use an “s” with the verb or not? In the present tense, singular verbs end with an “s”, plural verbs do not. Singular = “s” at end of verb Plural = no “s” Singular = The elephant trumpets for peanuts. Plural = The elephants trumpet for peanuts.
Practice The elephant drink water. The elephants drinks water. The elephant clean its trunks. The elephants cleans their trunks.
Do I use “is” or “are”? The verb “is” = singular The verb “are” = plural Examples: – The elephant is hungry. – The elephants are hungry.
Remember to Count your Subjects in each sentence: Single Subject: The elephant is entertaining the crowd. Plural Subject: The elephant and the monkey are entertaining the crowd.
