  1. 1.) The subject of a sentence is person,place,thing or idea e..g *Macy* was dancing.Subjects can’t be more than one except if you’re talking about a group because that’s the specific thing your talking about. An adjective and determiner included in the sentence indicates/determines or describes the object. The team warmed up for their football match.
    2.)A verb is a doing word and describes the nouns actions.Verbs can have additional words as they have two functions in a sentence. An adverb describes the verb and an auxiliary
    verb forms tense, mood and voices the other verbs e.g Macy was gracefully* dancing.*
    3.)An object is been acted upon from the subject e.g Macy danced at the *theater.* Objects don’t have more than one of them unless its a group. It requires the same rule as the subject e.g Macy is defeating the *team*.
    4.) In an active sentence the order of the appearance is subject,verb,object.
    5.) In a passive sentence the order of the appearance is object,verb,subject.

  4. A) What is the subject of a sentence? Give an example. Can the subject be more than one word (think adjectives and determiners). Give an example.
    1. The subject of a sentence is usually the person or thing acting. The subject is what the sentence is about (Amy would be the subject because she would be the one doing something). Example: Amy was kicking the ball. There can be more than one subject, because Amy and Max could be kicking the ball which makes both Amy and Max the subject. Example: Amy and Max were kicking the ball.
    B) What is a verb? Can the verbs have additional word with it (think auxiliary verbs and adverbs)? Give an example.
    2. A verb is a doing verb (etc. Running, Reading, Sitting). Example: Amy is reading a book. Auxiliary verbs form the tense, mood and voice (etc. Be, Do, Have). An adverb is a verb or phrase.
    C) What order will the subject, object and verb go in when you have a active sentence?
    3. The order that the Subject, object and verb will go in are: Subject first, Verb second and Object last. Example Amy (the subject: Amy ) was running (the verb: running) while holding a book (the object: book). Not all sentences will have an object!
    D) What order will the Subject,Object and Verb go in when you have a passive sentence?

    3) the object of the sentence is something you can touch for example i saw the APPLE on the table. it ,because, four
    4) subject , then verb after object because you will say who is doing it first before anything else and verb next to describe the object doing some thing.
    5) subject verb object for example the puppy is play with rosey.

  6. A subject of a sentence is a person/animal that is doing something.
    e.g. BARRY ran to the carrot. Barry is the subject because he is doing something.

    A verb is a moving word that shows what the subject is doing.
    e.g. Barry RAN to the carrot . ( most verbs end in -ed)

    The object of a sentence is a word that the subject is doing something to.
    e.g. Barry ran to the CARROT.

    If the sentence is active the order would be:
    Subject, verb, object

    If the sentence is passive the order would be:
    Object,Verb, Subject

  7. Ashiki’s Homework
    A) What is the subject of a sentence? Give an example. Can the subject be more than one word (think adjectives and determiners)?
    The subject of a sentence is the thing/person doing something. It is doing the verb of a sentence. All sentences have a subject in it. If you want to find the subject, you should find a verb and ask yourself who or what is doing the verb. Whoever is doing the verb is the subject
    Examples
    The dog nibbled his bone. Nibbled is the verb and the dog is doing the nibbling so the dog is the subject.
    The pen rolled on to the floor. Rolled is the verb and the pen is rolling on the floor meaning the pen is the subject.
    Kasey gave her dog his toy. Kasey is the subject as she is giving the dog his toy.
    There can be more than two subjects in a sentence. If it is a compound sentence- two sentences put together with a co-ordinating conjunction- there would be two subjects as the two sentences have two subjects. For example: Anna ate cake but her best friend Ava chose ravioli and salad. Anna and Ava are both subjects in the sentence. Sometimes more than one person is doing the same thing. The dog and me went for a walk. Both the dog and me is doing the walk so we are both subjects.
    Sometimes you have subject complements like adjectives which seem like the subject but really, they are not. Adam is a gifted musician. Gifted is a subject complement because it describes the subject Adam is the subject. Sometimes the determiner or the adjective before the subject is included in the subject like the cake or slow Joe.

    B) What is a verb? Can the verb have additional words with it (think auxiliary verbs and adverbs)? Give an example.
    A verb is a doing word. It describes the action a subject is doing. Sometimes if there are more than one verb in a sentence, there might not be two subjects. If you have two verbs check to see if both verbs have a subject. You do not find a verb in a phrase but in a clause.
    Examples of simple verbs
    • Clap
    • Hear
    • Listen
    • Swim
    • Dance
    • Play
    • Click
    • Turn
    • Plant
    You must be careful as sometimes verbs are in a sentence but in noun form.
    I turn on the tap. This is turn as a verb
    It is your turn now. This is turn as a noun.
    Always ask yourself, can you do this in this scenario of sentence.
    You can also have auxiliary verbs. Auxiliary verbs are verbs that help in giving a sentence a tense like past tense. There are 23 auxiliary verbs in total.
    • Am
    • Is
    • Are
    • Was
    • Were
    • Being
    • Been
    • Be
    • Have
    • Has
    • Do
    • Does
    • Did
    • Will
    • Would
    • Shall
    • Could
    There are 5 helping verbs. Helping verbs are verbs that help the main verb by adding information to the meaning.
    They are
    • May
    • Might
    • Must
    • Can
    • Could
    Verbs sometimes have ly words after it like carefully. They describe the verb.
    C) What is the object of a sentence? Give an example. Can the object be more than one word (think adjectives and determiners)? Give an example.
    The object of the sentence is the thing or person that is not doing anything. It has the impact of the subject. The object is not doing anything. There is not always an object in a sentence: it is not mandatory to have an object in a sentence. For example: Eva ate her sandwich. Eva is the subject as she is doing the eating but the object is the sandwich as it is not doing anything but the subject is doing something to it. It comes straight after a verb and shows what the verb is acting upon. The object can be a noun, noun phrase, preposition or pronoun. To find the object you must ask yourself what is the verb referring to. For example: Cat loves her cardigan. If you ask yourself what does Cat love. The answer is cardigan so cardigan is the object. Also the cardigan is not doing anything but the subject Cat is loving it so there is another way to prove that cardigan is the object. There can be more than one object. Cat loves her cardigan, necklace and bracelet. Cat is loving all three of those things so all three of those words cardigan, necklace and bracelet are objects. Gina gives presents. Present is the object. Gina gives presents and food. The presents and food are the object.
    D) What order will the subject, object and verb occur in when you have an active sentence?
    Active voice is when the subject of the sentence comes first and performs the action. An active sentence is written in the order S.V.O. Subject, verb then object.
    For example
    I like chocolate cake.
    He called the engineer.
    Catherine studied the periodic table.
    Jada pulled a funny face.
    Natalya ate a strawberry.
    Rio is my rabbit.

    E) What order will the subject, object and verb occur in when you have a passive sentence?
    A sentence is written in passive voice when the subject of the sentence has something done to it by someone or something. The subject is receiving the action (verb. To make a passive sentence you can have passive verbs like written, sung, rung…
    The order of a passive sentence is O.V.S. Object, verb, subject.
    For example
    The car was cleaned by the car cleaners.
    The song was sung by Jeremiah.
    Mr Weasley was cured by the healers.
    A cake is being made by the chef.
    The walls were being decorated when I arrived.

  11. VALENTINA’S HOMEWORK

    A)The subject of a sentence is the person, place or thing that is doing the action in the sentence. You can find the subject by finding the verb (doing word) and look in front and after the verb. There can be more than one word as a subject because it could be the cardboard, a pink dress…Examples:

    1) Jenna saved the goal. In this sentence the subject is Jenna because she the person that done the action (saved the goal).

    2) Leo pushed the chair over. In this sentence the subject is Leo because he is the person that done the action (pushed the chair over).

    B) A verb is a doing or action word. They tell us what someone or something did. There can be more additional verbs together because you could put an auxiliary verb and a verb next to each other like: been eaten been is the auxiliary verb and eaten is the verb.

    C)The object of the sentence has something done to it. You can find the object by finding the verb (doing word) and look in front and after the verb to see what group of word have been done something by. You can have more than one object because you could have a determiner or adjective in front or after the object. Examples: old door, the chair…

    1)Jenna saved the goal. In this sentence the object is the goal because the goal is being saved and it didn’t do anything.

    2) Leo pushed the chair over. In this sentence the object is the chair because the chair is being pushed by Leo and it is not doing anything.

    D)In an active sentence the sequence of the subject, object and verb is: subject, verb and then finally object. For Example:

    1)Leo threw the tennis ball. That is an active sentence because it goes Leo which is the subject because he is the thing or person that threw the ball. Then the verb threw. And then the subject is the tennis ball because it is being throwed.

    2)Valentina is writing a story. That is an active sentence because it goes Valentina which is the subject because she is the thing or person that wrote the story. Then the subject is followed by the verb which is writing. And then the subject is the story because it is being written.

    E) In a passive sentence the sequence of the subject, object and verb is: object, verb and then finally the subject. For Example:

    1)The ball was kicked by Leo. That is a passive sentence because it goes the ball which is the object because Leo is the one who kicked the ball but even though you could still put it in front of the verb and not after like it is usually it still makes sense for some reason. Then is the verb (kicked) like usual. And then the subject (Leo) and this is for the same reason as I wrote before

  12. A) the subject and a predicate make up the two parts of a sentence or relative clause. the subject is the person or thing that the sentence is about. the subject is preforming an action or being described in the sentence.

    B) a verb is a doing word or an action like: run, jog, skip or hop. these are all words are doing words which is a verb.

    C) the object in a sentence as the entity that is acted upon the subject

    D)s v o

  13. A) What is the subject of a sentence? Give an example. Can the subject be more than one word (think adjectives and determiners). Give an example.
    B) What is a verb? Can the verb have additional words with it (think auxiliary verbs and adverbs)? Give an example.
    C) What is the object of a sentence? Give an example. Can the object be more than one word (think adjectives and determiners)? Give an example.
    D) What order will the subject, object and verb occur in when you have an active sentence?
    E) What order will the subject, object and verb occur in when you have a passive sentence?
    A) The subject of a sentence is a main part who its talking about. Jacquelyn ate the bread. Jacquelyn is the subject because she is doing something to the verb.
    B) A verb is a doing word. It can have addtitoinal words because walked is still a verb and walk is.
    C)It is normally the thing that the subject is doing to the object. Jacquelyn ate the bread. Jacquelyn is the subject and bread is the object ate is the verb.
    D) SVO is a passive
    E) OVS is a active.

  14. A subject is a person that is the preson,place,thing or even an idea that is doing or being something. Alyssia kicked the football into the goal. Alyssia is the subject in this sentence. A sentence can have more than one subject in a nimber of ways. The ball was kicked by Alyssia in the park.

    A verb is a word to describe mostly action in a sentence. I kicked the ball. You could also add adverbs to describe how it was done. You could use auxiliary verbs as well. I kicked the ball slowly.

    An object is usally acted upon the subject. You could have more than one object in one sentence. I kicked the ball and I hit the tennis ball.

    In an active sentence it would go the subject then the verb and last the object. Alyssia kicked the ball.

    In a passive sentence it would go object verb and then subject.

  15. A verb is a doing word e.g toss- grow- run- open.
    He will grow his plant.

    A noun is the object of a sentence. Snakes, which scare me, are not always poisonous.

    The subject always goes before the verb. I could not find any information about objects in an active sentence.
