VERBS OF BEING
Action verbs are not the only verbs found in sentences! There are other verbs that are slightly more difficult to find because they simply show "being." For instance, in the sentence "He is an actor," the verb "is" merely forms a way to connect the subject "He" to the subject complement "actor." It does not show an action, but it is still a verb!
The verbs of being are:
am was be have do shall will can may
is were being has does should would could might
are been had did must
Now try your hand at creating sentences that contain a verb of being in each one. List your sentences in the comments section below. It is also a good idea to memorize these verbs (I did!), and to this end, I have listed them for you in groups that make it easier to remember!
