Other nouns can be subjects or objects, such as ‘cat’, ‘house’, or ‘pen’.
There are thousands of verbs, including: be, go, like, say, write, kiss, walk, eat…
Verbs are important
Verbs tell us what the subject is doing.
Verbs also tell us when the subject did it. This is because verbs change for the past, present, and future (for example: ate (past); eat (present); will eat (future).
