In this helping verbs worksheet, students have to read each sentence carefully. Next, they have to circle the action verb and underline the helping verb.
Generally, we use helping verbs to complement action verbs. For the majority of the time, the helping been goes before the action verb.
For example, in the sentence “he should listen in class” – “should” is the helping verb, and “listen” is the action verb.
