|A tense of a verb tells if the action happened in the present, past, or future.
A present tense verb shows action that happens now, or that it happens all the time.
A past tense verb shows action that happened before, or in the past.
A future tense verb shows action that will happen.
Directions: Choose if the verb in the sentence is in the present, past, or future tense. Write at least five more example sentences using each of the verb tenses. As a homework, read at least ten paragraphs from your favorite book and identify if the verbs in each paragraph are in present, past, or future tense.
