Kindergarten Verb Lesson Plan Example (English)

Description: A verb is a word that expresses an action, a state of being, or a concept through its

inflectional or derived forms.

Topic: Verbs

Objectives & Outcomes:

  • Students will be able to identify verbs in a given sentence.
  • Students will be able to conjugate simple verbs in the present tense.
  • Students will be able to use verbs correctly in their own writing.


  • Sentence strips with verbs
  • Flash cards with simple verb conjugations in the present tense
  • Writing paper and pencils


  • Have students sit in a circle and pass around a ball. When a student catches the ball, they must name a verb that they hear. For example, if a student hears "run," they would say "I hear the word 'run.' What does it mean to run?"

Direct Instruction

  • Write the word "verb" on the board and ask students what it means.
  • Provide a few examples of verbs, such as "run," "jump," and "eat," and have students repeat them after you.
  • Ask students to think of other verbs that they know and write them on the board.

Guided Practice

  • Have students work in pairs or groups to identify the verbs in a series of sentences or phrases and write them on the board.
  • Go over the list as a class and have students explain their reasoning.

Independent Practice

  • Assign each student a verb and have them create a visual representation of its -irregular-past-tense form (e.g. -aperu- aperu, -essu-essu, -allai-allai).
  • Have students present their creations to the class and explain how they arrived at their choices.


  • Review the main points of the lesson: -all-irregular-past-tenses are formed by adding -u- to the -root-of-the-verb-and-the-vowel-of-the-infinitive-ending-exceptionally-sometimes-there-is-no-vowel-in-the-infinitive-ending.


  • Write the chart on the board and have the students copy it in their notebooks.
  • Have the students practice the irregular past tense verbs in their pairs.
  • Play a game or conduct a competition to reinforce the verb tense.
  • Have the students share their drawings with the class and have the class vote for the winner.
  • Close the lesson by thanking the students for their participation and effort.
