Activity Purpose/ Summary:
The facilitator started the class by introducing a new topic to the students. We discussed the different types of verbs in English grammar. First, the facilitator explained the “action” verbs to the students. Then, the “linking” verbs were described, and finally, the meaning of “auxiliary” verbs was taught. The students were able to underline every different type of verb with some examples, which were corrected by the teacher if needed.

Personnel Input:
We explained an important topic in English grammar to the students, so they were able to gain a deeper understanding of the English language.

Action verbs are words that describe the action taking place in a sentence. They indicate what someone or something is doing.

A linking verb helps connect the subject of a sentence to additional information about the subject. Linking verbs are not action verbs and do not describe any action. Instead, they describe the state of being of the subject of the sentence.

Auxiliary verbs, also called helping verbs, are used along with a main verb to express tense, mood, or voice. For example, in the statement “it is raining,” “is” functions as an auxiliary verb indicating that the action of the main verb (“raining”) is ongoing.

The students were able to provide examples for every type of verb and create sentences including those verbs.

The sentence you provided is already correct and professionally toned:

“The students learned to form sentences correctly using the different types of verbs.”

No changes are necessary.

Unanticipated Achievements:
The students were able to recall some verbs from the previous lesson and learned how to use these verbs to form sentences.
