Day 18 / 102 - Five Principal Parts of a Verb

 Learning is much more fun when you get to write with Sharpie markers on the wall, right?

This week we've been learning about verbs and their principal parts (infinitive, present, past, present participle, past participle), so in order to foster learning and make this fun, we began writing some common regular and irregular verbs, along w/ their parts, on the wall.  On this chart we also added how a verb changes when the speaker changes (1st person - I sit vs. 3rd person - she sits) or when the subject becomes plural (the dog sits vs. the dogs sit).


  1. I think I need to come to your school! I don't think I ever had a firm grasp on all those terms!

    1. I didn't either until I started 'relearning' right along with my children. I'm surprised at how much I love Grammar and the English language now, which I always considered one of my worst subjects when I was in school.

  2. I have learned so much schooling my child! It is pretty awesome to be "re-educated" on so many things and levels that I didn't obviously grasp in school...and I am college educated! HA! Great idea Anne! I am so glad we found Easy Grammar curriculum....it has worked wonders for my daughter!
