C. Lesson Proper

Now, what do you think is our topic for today? Yes, another?

Okay you’re getting there what else?

Wow! One points for hufflepuff.

“Okay, I have noticed that most of you are not familiar with the tenses or the form of the verb.
Right?” “So this time we will be talking about the verb tenses. When to use a certain one and how
to use it is what we will be dealing today.” “So we have here verb tenses. Let’s first define what is a
tense? Anybody from the class who has an idea? Predin?”

“Thank you Predin for that nice idea, how about Ethel?”

“Okay, very good Ethel you are very near to the answer if you have just combine your answer to
Predin’s idea. So anybody can do that? Shall we have Rich?”

“Very good! You got it perfectly, let’s give a hand to her.” 5 points for ravenclaw

“Okay class, Rich is right a tense is a form of a verb that is used to show when an action happen.”

Verbs ma’am Action word ma’am

Ma’am ma’am past tense ma’am.

Tenses of the verb ma’am.

“Yes Ma’am!” Huhuhu yes ma’am. Ma’am please teach us!

“Okay Ma’am!”

“Ma’am, tense is something like a form of the verb.”

“Ma’am, tense is when an action happen.”

“Ma’am, tense is a form of a verb that is used to show when an action happen.” “Ma’am!?

“Verb is an action word Ma’am.”

Now what is written here is verb tenses, we already know what a tense is. How about the word verb
what is it?

“Okay, Jasmin?”

“And you got it very right!” “So class, we are going to talk about the forms of this action words,
what we known as verbs.” “We have three forms of verbs and what are those?” “Anybody?” “From
the game we have just did, I have mention it there”

“Okay, Gerald??”

“Very good! Okay, in English we have three basic tenses these are the past, the present and the
future.” So class, when we say in past form the action is what?

“No class, when we say it’s in past form, the action is already done.” “Understood?”
“Okay, everybody face in the front. Please read the meaning of past tense on the visual aid Mr.

“Okay thank you. For example, Sprinters ran like antelopes. The past tense there is what?”

“Okay, very good. You got it right Ezra! Ran is the past tense of run.”

“Nearly all regular and irregular verbs except “be” have just one past-tense form, such as climbed
or ran. The verb be has two past-tense forms was and were. Right?”

“for example: o I was sure. (when you are talking of


“Past, Present and Future Ma’am.

“The action is going on Ma’am”

“Yes ma’am!”

“Past tense is use to express an action or a condition that was started and completed in the past.”

“Ran ma’am!”

“Thank you ma’am.”

“Yes ma’am!”

singular) and we were sure (plural).”

“Okay now, who can give me another example of a verb using “be” in the past form.”

“Okay very well said Ethel.”

Now, next to Past tense is what?

“Oh Gerald again?”

“Hahahaha you are joking me. No darling it’s Present tense ma’am.”

“Anyone can define what a present tense is? o Oh yes Krissha you are raising your hand. What is

“Okay, thank you. Another hand from the class.”

“Oh yes! Ethel again, you are so participative.”

“Wow! Thank you for the very meaningful idea Little miss Ethel.”

“Okay, class please pay attention. These are the things that we need to remember in present
tense. Okay, shall we all read.”

“Me and my friends were sure.”

“Present Tense”

“Futuristic ma’am”

“Okay ma’am!
“State of being ma’am.”

“Ma’am! Ma’am! Ma’am!”

“It is used to show time, state of being, condition that exist now, and expresses general truth.”

“1. It is use to show time. o For example o It is 10o’clock 2. Present tense expresses a constant,
repeated, or habitual action or condition. It can also express a general truth. o For example: o
Matthew likes the taste of tea with honey in it. Meaning it shows a repeated action. o Another
example is God is valuable meaning it states a general truth. 3. Present tense can also express an
action or a condition that exists only now. o For example:

“Another example from the class that shows a condition that exist only now in a sentence.”

“Okay, very good. Thank you.”

“And last but not the least is what form of verb?” “Yes, certainly! It is Future tense. Meaning it is
use to express an action or a condition that will occur in the future.”

“But class, please be reminded that future tense has something to do with auxiliary verb and

“The word will and shall are just some of the example.”

“Okay, Gerald thank you for reminding me. o For example o Bobby will order the supplies. o I will
pack the car in the morning.”

“And class, there are three other ways to express future time besides using the future tense. “

“They are as follows: please read no 1. Rich

o Krista feels good about her score on the science test. Meaning not always but just now.”

“Gerald is writing”

“Future tense ma’am.”

“Okay ma’am.”

“Ah, okay ma’am and what are some of the examples of word showing future tense ma’am.”

“Ahhh . Thank you ma’am.”

“Ma’am can you give some example of a sentence showing future tense?”


“What are those ma’am?”

1. Use going to with the present tense of be and the base form of a verb. Example: Robby is going to
order the
