What is a verb?

A verb is a word used to describe an action, state or occurrence.

Verbs can be used to describe an action, that’s doing something.

For example, like the word ‘jumping’ in this sentence:

The rabbit was jumping in the field.

They can also be used to describe a state of being, that’s feeling something.

For example, the word ‘likes’ here:

The monster likes rollercoasters.

Or a verb can be used to describe an occurrence, that’s something happening.

For example, the word ‘became’ in this sentence:

The caterpillar became a butterfly.

When writing, make sure every sentence includes a verb.
