Here’s our collection of verb tenses worksheets. Verb tenses are the forms of verbs that show when an action or state occurs in time. There are three main tenses: past, present, and future. While there are other subdivisions like simple, continuous, and perfect we’re focusing on the basic three.

  1. Present tense: Describes actions or states happening now or general truths. Example: She works at the library. (simple present)
  2. Past tense: Describes actions or states that occurred in the past. Example: He walked to the store yesterday. (simple past)
  3. Future tense: Describes actions or states that will happen in the future. Example: They will travel to Japan next month. (simple future)
