My name is Ashley J. Rivera, I am 20 years old and am a student in the University of PR at Aguadilla. I am currently working on my BA in Education of English in Secondary but am also taking the credits for elementary to do both.My purpose of becoming an educator is because teaching for me, is more than a job; it is something that i am passionate about.
I teach to help and instruct, to assist students in seeing and reaching their potential, and set goals. In this page, you will find a module about different types of verbs and verb tenses. As a future teacher, I prepared a module, explaining these subjects and provided information and resources to help the students understand as well as assessments to evaluate them in the process.


After completing this module, the students will:
  • Know the different types of verbs and their meaning/function.
  • Identify different types of verbs in a sentence and know the difference between them.
  • Learn the different types of verb tenses
  • Change a verb to different tenses
  • Correct sentences that have verb errors.

Every sentence has a verb. A verb is the action of a sentence, it tells you what the subject is doing. This is the action verb. But to learn about verbs in a more fun way click on the link below the image of Isabella.

Other verbs

  • Linking verbs - They link or connect the verb to the subject.

    - ex: Casey was very cheerful. The linking verb -was connects Casey to cheerful.
  • Helping verbs - They assist or help give meaning to the main verb.

- ex: She had gone there yesterday. The helping verb -had assists gone because if you take out -had the sentence does not make sense.
  • Irregular verbs - Each one of them has a special way of being changed to past tense which is not specific or defined like other verbs that just need to be added -d or -ed. These tenses have to be memorized.

Verb Tenses

Verb tenses are the different ways you can write a verb depending on the time frame or point of view in which you are speaking or writing

  • To change a verb to past tense:
- if the verb ends in the letter -e, add a -d
- If the verb ends in a consonant, add -ed
- If the verb ends in -y, change the -y to -i and add -ed
  • To change a verb to present tense:
- if the verb ends in the letter -e, add a -s
- If the verb ends in a consonant, add -es
- If the verb ends in -y, change the -y to -i and add -es
  • To change a verb to future tense:
- Usually add the word -will after the verb, and occasionally you can add the word -shall but that is usually in questions.

      • Have in mind that these rules are what we usually use but there are irregular verbs which have a unique way of being changed which you can only learn by memorizing.
