As I am doing my 2nd homework task for 8th grade English, I got frustrated by trying to remember the parts of speech for a few words.
Usually Google is really helpful with examples and definitions.
However, I found out today that the word 'was' is a verb!
This is weird, because the word 'was' is often used in a way that makes a verb/adjective 'belong'* to a noun:
That was awesome!
I was reading.
See, a verb [I think] is a word that describes an action, right?

I don't see how the word 'was' can be used as a verb. Can someone help?
*I don't really know how to explain it.
