Learning time​

Kids learn by watching short, engaging video lessons.

This lesson is all about verbs. So, verbs are sometimes called doing words because many verbs name an action that someone or something does. Many verbs also name states or feelings such as, “I like something.” Verbs can have different tenses. Tenses control the time of a sentence. For example, “I jumped,” “I am jumping,” or, “I will jump.” Many people mix verbs and nouns as nouns can also name actions and states. Many words such as love can be a verb or a noun depending on how they are used. So, one tip for finding a verb or verbs in a sentence is to change the tense or time of the sentence and see which words change. For example, “I will eat dinner at six,” versus, “Yesterday, I ate dinner at six.” Since the words that change from one sentence to another were ‘will eat’ and ‘ate’, then we know those are the verbs of the sentences.
