What are verbs and give 10 examples?
Verbs are the most important part of any sentence because they tell what is happening in the sentence. For young readers, figuring out what the action is in the sentence is extremely crucial, and Turtle Diary understands that students need to practice a skill in order to make progress in understanding it. Whether it be past tenses practice, simple present tense practice, or simply to practice verb tenses in general, the exercise of verbs is extremely important.
There are two types of verbs that students need to learn and use for verb practice. Action verbs are words that show action or movement in a sentence. These are words like dance, sing, scream, fall, and run. The other type of verbs are known as 'state of being' verbs. These are words that connect the subject to another word in the sentence that renames or describes the sentence. State of being verbs include words like am, is, was, seems, and feels. Students need to know what verbs are so that they can understand how to create sentences of their own with verbs in them.
Since verbs can be so confusing, especially for students who are just starting out, it is important to get lots of practice. That is where the free quizzes from Turtle Diary for verb practice really come in handy. Students can get a quick refresher for each topic and then take a quiz to see if they understand the topic. Students receive immediate feedback if they are correct or incorrect for each question, and this is helpful for students to learn as they go. If students log in, they can also track their progress.
Turtle Diary offers practice with verbs for students in grades 1-5. Students can practice verb tenses, including past tenses practice and simple present tense practice. Just like exercising your body to keep it strong, the exercise of verbs is important to help students get a firm grasp on the main part of each sentence.
