509 FREE Verb Worksheets

FREE Verb Worksheets

With so many verbs to choose from, it can be hard to narrow down your focus. This section has 509 worksheets to practice verbs that can help you. There are flashcards, practice activities, and creative worksheets that can make studying verbs more enjoyable for you and your students. For a simple worksheet appropriate for elementary learners, consider this one that focuses on using the verb to be. It has a number of different activities that can give students the extra practice they need to feel confident using this verb. There are many other worksheets to choose from so look through this section to find something your students will enjoy. Students will be learning new vocabulary words continuously. Beginners start off being inundated with unfamiliar words, intermediate learners consciously study more challenging words relating to a wider array of topics, and advanced learners increase their vocabulary mostly by exposure to more English material. Advanced learners have the benefit of being able to guess the meaning of words based on the context of sentences while other learners often struggle to do this. Verbs are an integral part of any language and as such there are a huge number of them. Another worksheet on this site examines over eighty words with the same basic meaning of the word 'said'. That is a lot of different words with very similar meanings and is a great way to emphasize the fact that learning a language is a never ending process.

What Are Verbs?
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), 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 languages where the verb is inflected, it often agrees with its primary argument (the subject) in person, number and/or gender. With the exception of the verb to be, English shows distinctive agreement only in the third person singular, present tense form of verbs, which is marked by adding "-s" (I walk, he walks) or "-es" (he fishes). The rest of the persons are not distinguished in the verb (I walk, you walk, they walk, etc.).
