NEW: S-Vt-DO, Compound, INTERROGATIVE sentences

-Practice making these sentences interrogative (3 different ways)

“Jude loves food, and he loves walks.”

  1. Change end mark

“Jude loves food, and he loves walks?”

  1. Interrogative pronoun (CHART F)

“Who loves food, and who loves walks?”

  1. Add a helping verb (does)

“Does Jude love food, and does he love walks?”

 

Remember!!!!  Compound sentences must have two or more independent clauses (subject & verb), and be connected by a Coordinating Conjunction (FANBOYS)

 

Preposition (Pr) – CHART J

  • A preposition relates a noun or pronoun to another word.
  • ALWAYS HAVE AN OBJECT OF THE PREPOSITION (OP)
  • ALWAYS APEAR AS A PREPOSITIONAL PHRASE (with or without a modifier)

e.g.   “…in the morning.”   Or “…after dinner.”

 

-Shows the “position” of a noun or pronoun to another word (aka relates) = position words

Practice:

“Chloe hid her sock…”

  • Where did Chloe hide her sock? (Underneaththe table? Inthe yard? Behindthe sofa?)
  • You are relating her sock (noun) to something else. The “thing” that follows the preposition is called the object of the preposition.
  • Must memorize prepositions.
  • Play a game….“I’m going on a hike….”   (E.g.  I’m going on a hike, in the woods, across the river,  …… )

 

Prepositional Phrase can modify a VERB or NOUN

  • IF the prepositional phrase modifies the verb, it’s adverbial (acts as an adverb).
  • If it modifies a noun, then it is adjectival and the phrase acts as an adjective.

DIAGRAM:

  • The preposition is written on a diagonal line
  • The object on a horizontal line below the preposition
  • The adjective under the object of the preposition.

What is the preposition?

“I found the remote beneath the blanket.”

Object of the preposition?

“I found the remote beneath the blanket.

Prepositional phrase?

“I found the remote beneath the blanket.

Diagram

The boy hugged his mother in the morning. (adverbial phrase)

Sometimes the same word can act as an adverb or a preposition.  “outside”

  • It is a preposition if it is a phrase and has a object of the preposition
  • Adverb stands alone.

“The boy went outside the house.”

“The boy went outside.”
