Verbs can show when an action happens.

This is called
tense.
Different verb tenses have different forms.

Present tense
means it's happening now.
Past tense
means it already happened.
Future tense
means it will happen.
Present tense

For most present tense verbs, the subject and verb in a sentence must agree.

To make most present tense verbs agree with singular subjects, add -s to the verb. If the subject is plural, the verb does not end in -s.

Verbs used with the pronouns
I, you, we,
and
they
do not end in -s.
Past tense

Form the past tense of many verbs by adding -ed.

When a verb ends with e, drop the e before adding -ed.

When a one syllable verb ends with one vowel followed by one consonant, double the final consonant before adding -ed.

When a verb ends with a consonant followed by y, change the y to i before adding the -ed.
Future Tense

Add the helping verb
will
to a verb to make it a future tense verb.
What does "prohibit lights from shining on the beach" mean?
Prohibiting is a strong action. What does prohibiting lights tell you about people's feelings about turtles?
It shows that people want to help turtles and keep them safe.
