Future Tense Verbs Worksheets

Working through the lesson and worksheets will enable you to develop both proper sentence structure and paragraph skills simultaneously.

Remember that the noun or pronoun is the direct object that tells who or what receives the action of the verb. The noun receives the verb. The object receives the action.

We use the helping verb, "will" or "shall" and "be going to" to express the future tense plus the root form of the main verb.

"Will" and "be going to" usually have the same meaning except when we have a planned action. A future planned action is an event that you have planned to do.
Example; I am going to visit my parents in June.

Writing Tip: The verb is the word in the English Language that indicates the time of an event. A verb may be in the present tense (happening right now), past tense (has already happened), or future tense (is going to happen).
