5A - Finish Lesson 1 questions on back of WS if you did not finish in class. 

 English 5A ENGLISH HOMEWORK:

Study Lessons 1 - 4.  Quiz on Monday, 12/4. 

1.  Please focus on finding the verb(s) FIRST. 

2.  Then determine if it is action or linking. 

a.  If it is something you can do, it is action.  Then, look before the action verb to see if there are any helping verbs.  Next, ask yourself What? or Whom? after the action verb.  If there is an answer to the question, then that is the direct object (D.O.)

b.  If there isn't any action verbs, then it is more than likely a linking verb.  Remember-some linking verbs can also be action verbs:  look, feel, taste, smell, appear.  To tell the difference, substitute look, feel, taste, smell, appear with the word is, are, or am.  If it makes sense, it is a linking verb.  

ex.  I feel happy.  I am happy.  It makes sense, so it is a linking verb.

ex.  I feel the scratchy bark.  I am bark.  It does not make sense, so it is an action verb.  Since it is action, I can ask, "Feel what?" and the answer is "bark", so bark is the D.O.

Once you determine it is a linking verb, you have to "LINK" the subject to a word that describes the subject.  That word will be in the complete predicate.  

ex.  I will be extremely joyful!  The linking verb is "will be".  The subject is "I".  "I" is being linked to "joyful".
