Worksheet Overview

A verb is a doing or action word. Many verbs follow certain rules when we add endings to them. These are called regular verbs.

In this worksheet we are going to look at adding s, ed, and ing to verbs.

cook    cooks    cooked    cooking

jump    jumps    jumped    jumping


For most verbs ending in e we need to make a change to the verb before we add the endings.

save    saves    saved    saving

We add d instead of ed and we drop the e before we add ing.


For many verbs with a short vowel sound the rule is different again.

drop    drops    dropped    dropping

The last letter is doubled before adding ed or ing, but not before adding s.
