Journal

If you lived 2000 years ago, which would be the best to own: a horse, a cow, or a dozen chickens? Why?

Quote

“If I were you, I’d run away. If you were me, you’d be good looking.” –Samurai saying

Word of the Day

We can tell from Miss Salisbury’s mistakes on the slides that she is a fallible person, even though she claims to be perfect.

Usually ends with “ly”

Example: Stitch loudly rocked out to Elvis.

Example: The unruly way Stitch acted made Lilo unpleasantly angry.


Pronouns

  • Pronoun

  • A word that takes the place of one or more nouns

  • Examples: he, she, it, those, them, etc.

  • Example: Eric gave Ariel a ring, and she loved it!

  • Example: Ariel and Eric are a cute couple, aren’t they?


Pronouns

  • Pronouns that are used to refer to specific people or things.

  • Example: The minions are cute, in fact, they are adorable!

  • Example: Do you know Mr. Gru? He is a very nice person.


Pronouns

  • Object pronoun

  • When a personal pronoun is the subject of a sentence

  • Example: He hit the ball.

  • When a personal pronoun is the object of a verb or preposition.

  • Example: She ran into him.


Pronouns

  • Antecedent

  • The noun or group of words that a pronoun refers to.

  • Example: *NSYNC is awesome, and I love them!

  • Example: There is glitter all over the place, and it is making a mess!


Pronouns

  • Possessive Pronoun

  • A pronoun in the possessive case. It shows who or what has something. May take the place of a possessive noun.

  • Example: His dog makes me laugh.

  • Example: There is a butterfly on her dog’s nose.


Pronouns

  • A pronoun that does not refer to a particular person, place, or thing.

  • Example: It is incredibly hot in here!

Demonstratives

  • Example: This is the best hotdog I have ever had!

  • Example: That is the best color in the world!


Intensifiers

Intensifier

Amplifies the meaning of the word it modifies.

In your own writing, I would prefer to not see these!

Examples: very, quite, really (not real!), almost

Example: The T-Rex has a really big head and very little arms.

Example: Lewis is really smart and super cool.
