This document is a companion to ALNS’ English Verb Tenses – An Overview. ALNS also offers templates for practising past and future verb tenses. This resource helps teachers primarily but might be appropriate for some learners. It summarises all English present tenses and offers space to practise. It visually conveys the relativities (which is important in areas like this). It doesn’t teach you about present tenses per se, but summarises the spectrum to boost understanding. It’s especially useful with students who use verbs well but need to learn about their forms. In doing this, it helps literacy and numeracy teachers plan and deliver verb sessions well.
ALNS’ Present Tense Practice Template is available in MS Word and/or .pdf format. Due to the nature of the online environment, a pre-purchase view isn’t possible. ALNS’ templates aim to help teachers primarily although many are suitable for learners, too. None of them, however, substitute the need for you to research and deliver to the needs of your students.
You are charged a nominal fee to cover a very small part of its production. How we stagger teaching and learning is subjective. What’s offered here is not the only way to teach things. The aim in providing this resource is to help you prepare and revise efficiently. It is not a lesson plan so remember to assess its appropriateness in your program.
