Teach Starter Publishing
Google Slide, PDF | 1 page | Years: 3 - 4

Practise verb tense by changing sentences into past, present and future.

Using Past, Present, and Future Tense Sentences!

These worksheets are best used as independent practise as part of a verb tense lesson. With this verb tense activity, students will practise converting sentences into past, present, and future tenses. 

This group of verb tense worksheets includes instructions, ten words for students to change the tense of, and one opportunity to write a sentence in past, present, or future tense. 

There are three sheets included in the file download covering the following:

  • Changing sentences from past tense to future tense
  • Changing sentences from past tense to present tense
  • Changing sentences from present tense to past tense

Primary writing lines are used in this resource to assist young writers with letter formation. An answer key is included with your download to make grading fast and easy!  

Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding 

For struggling readers and writers, try the following differentiation ideas:

  • Provide a verb tense or other reference materials for students to refer to during independent practice.
  • Complete the activity in a 1:1 setting, or provide small-group instruction.
  • Partner struggling readers with other students to assist in the reading component of the activity.
