Parts of Speech - Verbs


Verbs are the most important words in a sentence. Verbs are the first of the eight parts of speech that we will be studying. Most verbs are action words, but a few verbs indicate state of being or existence. The first lessons will be about verbs, and how they are recognized and used.


Instructions: Find the verbs in the following sentences. They are action verbs.


1. The wolf ran across the sand.


2. Sit down.


3. The dog barked at the man.

2. sit


3. barked


All three verbs are action verbs since they show action. Action verbs are the most common verbs.
