1 VERB PHRASES OBJECTIVES: 1. Students should understand that a. Participles are verbals like gerunds and infinitives (words that are derived from verbs) b. Perfect verb phrases are made up of a form of the verb have followed by a past participle verb. c. Progressive verb phrases are made up of a form of the verb be followed by a present participle verb. d. Both perfect and progressive verb phrases can be in the past, present, or future tense. 2. Students should be able to a. Identify examples of perfect and progressive verb phrases in all three tenses. b. Write correct sentences that contain perfect and progressive verb phrases. c. Choose the most effective type of verb phrase to convey the desired meaning. LITERATURE: This unit contains example selections from the novel Drums, Girls, & Dangerous Pie by Jordan Sonnenblick.

2 One Read the following sentences. Each uses a slightly different type of verb or verb phrase. Match each sentence to one of the visual representations below: 1. Bob worked at McDonald s a few years ago. 2. Bob was working at McDonald s when I called him. 3. Bob had worked at McDonald s, so I called him to see whether it was a good job or not. A Present Perfect Bob s employment at McDonald s I called him B Past Tense Bob s employment at McDonald s C Past Progressive Bob started his shift at McDonald s I called him Wordplay Just for fun! CATALOGUE CREATOR: The root word -chron- means time and sounds like kron. How many words can you list that contain this root?

3 Two A progressive verb phrase consists of the verb be plus a present participle verb that s a verb ending in ing like eating, asking, or doing. (An act that s in progress = a progressive verb phrase makes sense, right?) WAS / WERE + PRESENT PARTICIPLE = Past Progressive IS / ARE + PRESENT PARTICIPLE = Present Progressive WILL BE + PRESENT PARTICIPLE = Future Progressive In the following sentences, replace the simple verb with a progressive verb phrase, but keep the tense so if it s a past-tensed verb, make it a past progressive verb phrase: 1. The star basketball player shoots a three-pointer. 2. He starts in every game on his high-school team. 3. He played ball on the street as a kid. 4. Every day, he competed against boys that were older than he was. 5. He will join an NBA team next year. 6. One day, the boy from the street will earn a championship MVP award. Wordplay Just for fun!

4 Three A perfect verb phrase consists of the verb have plus a past participle verb that s a verb that most often (but not always) ends in ed or -en like been, eaten, asked, or done. (There s nothing perfect about this verb phrase that s just what it s called.) HAD + PAST PARTICIPLE = Past Perfect HAVE / HAS + PAST PARTICIPLE = Present Perfect WILL HAVE + PAST PARTICIPLE = Future Perfect In the following sentences, replace the simple verb with a perfect verb phrase, but keep the tense so if it s a past-tensed verb, make it a past perfect verb phrase: 1. The astronauts landed on the strange planet. 2. Dangerous creatures roam the planet s surface. 3. The men will risk their lives to explore the new world. 4. The space ship launched from the earth. 5. Five years later, the explorers will return home. Wordplay Just for fun!
