Main Verbs and Helping Verbs

A main verb shows the main action or state of being in a sentence. 
Examples:
        Beau and his mom cook dinner on Thursday nights. 
        My sister has followed this program for years. 
        The series will reach its conclusion next spring. 
        They may release a movie shortly after that. 
        We will be checking the magazines for news about it. 
        I should pay that much attention to my studies.

A helping verb helps the main verb show tense. Helping verbs include forms of be, do, and have, as well as will, can, may, should, and must
Examples:
        They will make steamed dumplings for dinner tomorrow.
