ACTION VERBS ARE USED TO SHOW WHEN SOMEBODY DOES SOMETHING

A few other points to remember:
  • Action verbs can also be actions you can't see such as: Mariah thought about pets. She wanted a bunny.
  • Action verbs are time-telling verbs. They also tell when something takes place.
  • Actions verbs may be used alone as the main verb of a sentence; as in: My kitten fell into the pond. Or the action verb may use a helping verb; as in: If you get too close to the edge, you will fall too.
