The two verbs tense we will be discussing in this lesson is past tense and present tense. The lesson is designed to help children make correct sentences using the right verb tense.

They will be taught that a verb in the present tense shows an action that is happening while a verb in the past shows that an action already took place . It describes an action that happened in the past.

Ask the children to tell you what they did yesterday. Write down what each child says. After that, underline the action words in each of them



Find out the verbs that are used in their right tense.

Explain to the children that every action word has its present and past tense.

To make the lesson sink faster to their young mind, we will use today to mean present tense and yesterday to mean past tense.

We also want the children to be conversant with pronouncing present and past tense.
