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 seeks to help teachers primarily whilst also being appropriate for some learners. It summarises all English present tenses and offers space to practise them in. It visually conveys the relativities (which is important in areas like this). It doesn’t seek to teach you about present tenses per se, but to summarise the options and promote 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 formats.
Due to the nature of the online environment, it is not possible to provide a pre-purchase view of this resource. You are charged a nominal fee to cover a very small part of its production. How we stagger teaching and learning is subjective; I am not inferring that mine is the only approach. My aim in providing this resource is to help you prepare efficiently and revise what you need to. It is not a lesson plan so you will need to assess its appropriateness in your program.

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.
All the best with your teaching!
