Be is used with adjectives. Have is used with nouns. Complete these sentences:

Partner a: Describe a friend to your partner. Include some nouns and some adjectives.
Partner b: Listen to the description. Can you imagine the person they are describing, or do you need more information? Do the verbs seem to match the nouns/adjectives?
Directions: Use the words below and write a post card to a friend about your holiday in Paris, France. You must use all these verbs, and include both simple present and present progressive.
To make a yes/no question form your sentence like this:
Do/Does + subject + base verb+ object or complement
Example: Mary goes shopping becomes:
Does Mary go shopping.
Partner 1:Do you play video games after school?
Partner 2: Yes, I do.
Partner 1: Do you eat snacks after school?
Partner 2: No, I wait for dinner.
*NOTICE: The answers for partner 2 can only be Yes or No.
Discuss with your partner.
Example 1: I am nothappy.
How do we know that happy is an adjective?
Because it describes a noun. In this case the noun isI.
Example 2: He is nottall.
What is tall describing here?
Tall describes he.
*With or without the adjective we still use notwith (a + [adjective] + noun), however the meaning of the two sentences is very different.
Example 1: He is not studying.
Example 2: She is notsleeping
Example 3: They arenot leaving.
Example 4: We aren’t meeting at the café, we are meeting at the movie theater.
When there is no article, but there is an adjective + a general, plural, or non-count noun, use NO.
Example 1: I have no small pets. * notice that pets is plural, so there is no article. (So we use not.)
Example 2: I have noclean clothes to wear. I need to do the laundry.
Now, write these phrases into your notes with the correct negative. Fill in the blank with no or not.
Directions: Describe yourself to your partner using the negative. You can also use the positive, but make sure to practice using no and not.
Directions: Now draw a chart on your paper just like the example. Make one column countable and one column uncountable.
Put these words into the right column on your paper:
You just won a shopping spree! What will you buy with your free money? Tell your partner.
Example: I will buy some designer clothes. I will buy a video game. I will buy some furniture.
Directions: Talk with your partner.
