Progressive Tense Verbs

Welcome to our Teacher Toolkit Series!
Our topic today is teaching Progressive Tense Verbs!
Here is an idea for an Anchor Chart.
Our students love the pirate theme in our classroom!
So what is a Progressive Tense Verb?
Progressive Tense Verbs describe ongoing actions
in the present, past or future.
Basically, students need to know that they need two elements:
a “to be” verb (am, is, are, was, were, will be)
and an action verb ending in -ing.
We like to create a chart to show which “to be” verb they should use. Whenever students write a progressive verb sentences, we have them use two different color highlighters to code their sentence. They use one color for the “to be” verb and another for the action verb ending in -ing.
We have found this to be a successful tool.
Our students love practicing Progressive Tense Verbs with our Emoji Progressive Verb Activity FREEBIE!
