Making a Verb Chart

Directions:

  1. Use a chart to help you with verb recognition for half verbs.

  2. In column 1, list 10 different verbs at random.

  3. In columns 2, 3, and 4, type each verb as an infinitive, a present participle, and a past participle.

  4. Use a dictionary to check the accuracy of your answers.

Examples:

VerbInfinitivePresent ParticiplePast Participle
1talkto talktalkingtalked
2readto readreadingread
3writeto writewritingwritten

Note: In these random verb selections, only the verb talk has a regular past participle -ed ending.
