The study of the tense of a verb is introduced in the Junior Elementary. The main tenses of a verb are given with the VERB TENSE BOARD. The exercise consists of showing the child that actions (verbs) can take place at three main times: PAST, PRESENT and FUTURE. There are 12 movable cards for the tenses, 12 printed sentences to be analyzed, and 4 arrow markers designed to be used on the board. With this material, the student is also introduced to the identification of personal pronouns by using the large chart of SIMPLE VERB CONJUGATION. Dr. Montessori designed these manipulative activities, so that the elementary students could easily see the close connection between the use of personal pronouns and the conjugation of verbs. All exercises are printed on durable, flexible LAMINATED cardstock or vinyl material. This work is coordinated with the Albanesi Curriculum Program (ACP).
