LESSON – 3



THE   SIMPLE 
PREDICATE, OR VERB



The complete
predicate includes all of the words that tell what the subject does or is.  There is one part of every complete predicate
that is more important than the rest. 
This part is the verb.

Some verbs tell
about an action.  They are action verbs.
            The cat jumped from the tree.   (jumped)
            Debra rode her bike to the
store.  (rode)
Other verbs state
that something is.  They are
state-of-being verbs.
            Football is my favorite sport.
            We are last in line.
IDENTY VERBS :

(Draw a
line under the verb in each sentences. 
Then tell whether the verb is an action verb or a state-of-being verb).
