Parts of speech builds the foundation for English grammar. There are overall 8 parts of speech in English grammar. A verb is also a part of speech. Sound knowledge of the parts of speech is very important in setting up a good foundation for kids’ education.
No sentence in English can be built without a verb in it. Kids need to understand that every action and state of being is a verb. So, verbs play a crucial role in sentence construction.
Verbs can be broadly categorized into action verbs and helping verbs. Action verbs are again divided into two sub-categories: transitive verbs and intransitive verbs. Modal verbs are those helping verbs which express necessity or possibility. Solving verb questions will enhance the understanding of verbs in kids.
