  • ELA -

    Verbs can either show action or state of being. Action verbs tell what someone or something is doing.

    In your first sentence, "We spent a considerable amount of time," which word tells what we did?

    Sentences 2 and 3 have state of being verbs.
    The most common state of being verbs are:
    be, am, are, is, was, were.

    Which of those verbs do you see in the second and third sentences?

    I'll be glad to check your answers.
