Enticing First Grade Present Tense Verbs Resources
Students are introduced to basic grammar components in first grade. When studying verbs, young children learn the difference between past and present tenses. Present tense verbs relay action at the moment. Most verbs can be altered to present tense by adding an –s at the end of the word. If the verb ends in a –y, then the first graders will typically add an –ies. For –s, –z, –ch, or –x, the standard is to replace those constants with –es, although there are some exceptions.
