Verb Tense Worksheets: Past, Present and Future Conjugation

There are 12 verb tenses in past, present and future. If you want to practice conjugating verbs, we have 5 verb tense worksheets to help.

For example, you can practice present simple with daily routines. What do you do every day or every week?

If you want to practice past irregular verbs, students will have to fill in the blanks with the correct conjugation.

And don’t forget that all these verb tense worksheets are 100% free to use in any type of educational environment. Take a look:

1 Present Simple: Daily Routines

Daily Routines Present Verb Tense

What are your daily and weekly routines? Are the activities in the Daily Routines Worksheet part of your routine? In the “Daily Routines Worksheet”, students explore the present verb tense by thinking of what they do every day or week.

First, put students in pairs. Next, they review each of the daily routine examples in the worksheet. Using the present verb tense, they ask each other what their daily routines are?

For example, do they wash their hands every day? Can they think of other daily routines they have? How about weekly or monthly routines?

2 Irregular Past Tense Verbs

This worksheet tests students knowledge for writing the irregular past tense for 10 verbs. In addition, it has basic matching with each irregular verb.

First, students have to complete the sentence by conjugating the verb in the Irregular Past Tense Verbs Worksheet. At the end of each sentence, it has the verb they have to use.

After completing this, they have to match each sentence with the image below. Simply, they have to write the number in the box. Finally, can they think of any other irregular verbs? In pairs, they can write a list of other irregular past tense verbs on a separate piece of paper.

3 Present Continuous: Group Charades

Group Charades Ideas

Group Charades can put a well-needed twist to the instant classic. Instead of acting independently, the entire group acts it out and one person guesses.

All of the examples in the group charades worksheet are of the present continuous form. For example, he is throwing a baseball or she is fishing in a boat.

For this activity, I usually split the class into groups. For example, if you have 30 students, make 6 groups of five. The worksheet has charades ideas to act out. Rather than one person acting out, the whole group acts it out.

4 Imperative Verbs: Simon Says

Simon Says Ideas

Simon Says is a great way to practice imperatives because students have to complete the action that “Simon Says”. But if you don’t say “Simon Says”, students don’t have to complete the action.

For example, if you only say “Touch your nose”, students should do nothing. But if you say “Simon says touch your nose”, students should actually touch their nose.

If you’re looking for Simon Says ideas, we have provided a worksheet below that you can use. For example, students can touch their nose, jump up and down and run in a circle.

5 Present Perfect: Have You Ever?

Elephant In The Room - Have you ever questions

In this present perfect activity, we practice “Have You Ever?” questions by getting active.

First, start by telling students there is a ‘yes’ side and ‘no’ side. Previously, you should add “yes” and “no” posters to the wall to help remind them which side is which. As you say ‘Have you ever’ questions, your students can run to either side of the room.

There’s something satisfying about investigating your students while building their listening skills at the same time.
