I have a brother verbs that might not really look like verbs because they do not seem very active - eg. he is in the bathroom verbs that are made up of more than one word and an explanation of the terms** auxiliary verb** and** main verb** It is interactive and you can ask the children to answer questions individually or to work in pairs on longer more creative activities.
