Grammar and Usage Lesson #47

CCSS.ELA–LITERACY.L. 1

Demonstrate command of the conventions of standard English grammar and usage when writing or speaking.

Shifts in Verb Tense


Verb tense is the form of the verb that indicates time. There are three simple verb tenses: the past, present, and future. Examples: Mykah jumped, Mykah jumps, Mykah will jump.

Generally, keep the same verb tense in a sentence or group of related sentences. This is especially important with the past tense. However, when a change in time is necessary, it is certainly appropriate to change tenses, even within the same sentence.
