Title: Verb Tense


1
Verb Tense
  • Keep it consistent throughout your story!

2
Examples
  • Written well I ambled into the house and looked
    in the kitchen he was nowhere to be found.
  • Not well written I ambled into the house and
    look in the kitchen he is nowhere to be found.
  • Written well I saw the spider, and I jerked my
    hand away.
  • Not well written I see the spider, and I jerked
    my hand away.

3
Your turn
  • Practice
  • From Active Verb list, LA folder
  • Choose any three active verbs.
  • On your paper, write a three-sentence paragraph
    using the three active verbs you chose, one per
    sentence.
  • When youre done, underline all the verbs in your
    sentences (was, is etc) make sure they all match
    the active voice!

4
My example
  • I assess the situation in every difficult and
    fearful instance. I determine the area is full
    of spiders and they need to extracted. I
    construct an exit plan for myself while the
    insect is alive in the room.

5
Finally.
  • Copy the following paragraph onto your paper.
  • Underline all the verbs. 8 total.
  • Edit to ensure that verb tense matches.
  • She was eating quickly, and I watch her. She
    chokes and I ran to get my phone. I dialed 911
    and she turns blue. A man began the Heimlich
    maneuver she is saved!

7
Should your verb tense match?
The horse galloped. The horse gallops. The horse
will gallop.
8
Why its important
  • Verbs are different from most other parts of
    speech because they change their form. Verbs must
    match the PERSON or subject of the sentence and
    the time of the action or state of being. We
    learned about person in the first lesson on
    verbs. The time part of the form a verb takes is
    called its TENSE.

9
Three main verb tenses
  • Past- the paint fell
  • Present- the paint falls
  • Future- the paint will fall

10
Present Tense
  • Verbs in sentences about things that are
    happening now, continually, or regularly are in
    the PRESENT TENSE.
  • Example Pick 2 verbs from list and write 2
    sentences for each verb in present tense. Follow
    pattern below I watch videos after school.I
    run in the park.Mary watches videos after
    school.Mary runs in the park.

11
Present Perfect Tense
  • A verb is in the present perfect tense when it
    expresses action which began in the past but
    continues or is completed in the present. To form
    the present perfect tense, you will add HAS or
    HAVE to the past participle. Pick two different
    verbs from list and practice the present perfect
    tense.
  • Example
  • She has screamed at her friends many times but
    they have ignored it.

12
Past tense
  • Verbs in sentences about an action or existence
    that already happened are in the PAST TENSE.
    Verbs known as regular verbs have ed endings in
    the past tense. A verb changes to indicate past
    tense
  • Mary walked her dog yesterday
  • Johnny jumped up and down in the gym
  • We won our game.
  • Pick 2 different verbs from list and use them
  • in the past tense.

13
Past Perfect Tense
  • A verb is in the past perfect tense when it
    expresses action that began in the past and was
    completed in the past. To form the past perfect
    tense, add had to the past participle.
  • Example Pick another verb from list and write a
    sentence in the past perfect tense.
  • Then, last Friday at the Pizza Hut, they had
    eaten more than their share of the pizza, when
    she called them greedy pigs.

14
Future Tense
  • Verbs in sentences about action/existence that
    will happen are future tense verbs. They often
    start with the helping verb will. Pick two
    different verbs from list write a sentence for
    each in future tense.
  • She will be late for class.
  • My mom will make me eat my dinner.
  • Susie will run home after school to make it to
    her piano lesson.

15
Future Perfect Tense
  • A verb is in the future perfect tense when it
    expresses action or existence which will begin in
    the future and will be completed by a specific
    time in the future. To form the future perfect
    tense, add shall have or will have to the past
    participle.
  • Example Pick two brand new verbs to practice
    future perfect tense.
  • By next Friday, she will have forgotten the
  • pizza, but they will have remembered the
  • name calling.

16
Progressive Tense
  • The progressive tense uses the present participle
    form of to be (remember that to be verbs are
    from the helping verb song) . It is the to be
    verb (infinitive) present participle.
  • Example Practice progressive below
  • To grow I am growing To hate hating
  • To yell He was yelling To drive driving
  • To eat We were eating To shop shopping

17
Progressive Present/Past Future
PRESENT PROGRESSIVE PAST PROGRESSIVE FUTURE PROGRESSIVE
To watch am watching is watching are watching was watching were watching will be watching shall be watching
To eat am eating is eating are eating was eating were eating will be eating shall be eating
18
So, whats the point?
  • In all your writing your verb tenses must match.
    IF they dont your writing will seem choppy and
    not fluent. Decide when you embark on a new piece
    of writing if you will tell the story from the
    present, past, or future perspective.

    the driveway he runs and jumped on the cats
    back. The cat howled and slapped at the dog. Poor
    old dog! He had gotten a big scratch on his nose
    and will race back home.
