All About Verbs

A verb is an important part of speech that shows action, and a sentence is not complete without a verb. Work with your child to correctly identify and use verbs in conversation and writing. Understanding this important part of grammar will help foster good writing skills.
Teach your students how to identify and modify verbs in the sentences they read. Not only will this enhance their understanding of grammar, but it will help them to improve word choice as they become more advanced writers.
