Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

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 different types of regular verbs.

 

For most verbs ending in y we need to change the verb before we add the endings.

carry    carries    carried    carrying

The y changes to i before adding s or ed, but not before adding ing.

 

For many verbs ending in ss, zz, ch or sh the rule is different again.

hiss    hisses    hissed    hissing

buzz    buzzes    buzzed    buzzing

touch    touches    touched    touching

wish    wishes    wished    wishing

We have to add e before adding s, but not before adding ed or ing.

Add ed to the following verb.

 

try

Add s to the following verb.

 

wash

Add s to the following verb.

 

fizz

Add ed to the following verb.

 

bury

Add ing to the following verb.
