VERBS - Definition

VERBS - Definition:

A verb, from the Latin verbum meaning word, is a word (part of speech) that in syntax conveys an action (bring, read, walk, run, learn), an occurrence (happen, become), or a state of being (be, exist, stand)
.
In the usual description of English, the basic form, with or without the particle to, is the infinitive. In many languages, verbs are inflected (modified in form) to encode tense, aspect, mood and voice. A verb may also agree with the person, gender, and/or number of some of its arguments, such as its subject, or object. In many languages, verbs have a present tense, to indicate that an action is being carried out; a past tense, to indicate that an action has been done; and a future tense, to indicate that an action will be done.

Where The Action Is: Verbs
Verbs are action words...they tell how we are feeling, what's happening, or what we are doing. Here's an activity sheet that will help you demonstrate the concept of verbs. As your child names each verb, ask them to do that action for you. (They'll get very creative with this one!)
