Declarative & Interrogative Sentences
(Week of August 9th)
A declarative sentence makes a statement. For example, "I like to read." I tell the students to think of the "Declaration of Independence" as a mnemonic device--the U.S. declared, or stated they were going to be independent from Great Britain.

Linking & Action Verbs
Verbs that show action (e.g. to jump) are action verbs.
Example:  Ted ran through the snow quickly to try to catch the rabbit.

The verbs that tell what the subject is or what the subject is like are linking verbs (e.g. was).
Example: Linda is friends with her her peers at school.

Subject-Verb Agreement
Singular Subject:
The subject and the verb in a sentence must agree. To make singular nouns or he, she, or it agree with most present tense verbs add -s (or -es if verb ends in ch or x).

Plural Subject:
If the subject is plural or I, you, we, or they, the present tense verb does not end in -s.

Synonyms & Antonyms

Students help the "Synonym Fairy" match synonyms.

Antonym Match
