What our Verb Tenses – Grade 5 lesson plan includes
Verb Tenses – Grade 5 explains verbs that communicate different aspects of language. It focuses on differences between verbs that convey time, sequence, state, and condition. The lesson provides detailed instruction on each of these areas. By the end, students will learn both how to identify these verbs and how to use them correctly.
This lesson begins with a brief overview of what verb tenses are. It explains that actions that occur at different times require different tenses. As an example, the lesson illustrates how a message varies based on tense. The lesson divides tenses into categories: time, sequence, condition, and state. It defines each category to help students understand which tenses belong in that group. For instance, the lesson defines “sequence” as a verb that “conveys the order of events.”
Furthermore, the lesson discusses helping and linking verbs. These verbs are necessary to convey certain tenses. It then discusses how to use verb tenses correctly. It provides several statements and includes which tense category the statement is in. You can test students’ comprehension with the activity, practice, and homework worksheets that follow.

VERB TENSES – GRADE 5 PRACTICE WORKSHEET
