This week we will be covering the topic of verb forms.

The first lesson is introductory, striving to have the student begin to think about the different forms that verbs take.

Subsequent lessons will contain verb form lists, the principle names for the verb forms and plenty of practice.

During this week and in weeks to follow, encourage your student to think of different forms of verbs throughout the day. Asking them to restate sentences using a new form of a verb will help them better understand irregular verbs and their different forms.
