Using Nouns in Sentences

Grade 4 2011-2012

slide2

Why do you think nouns are important part of the English language?

Is it possible for us to communicate our thoughts clearly without even using a single noun?

slide3

Remember:

Nouns are everywhere and it is not only important for us to know their classifications (Are they common or proper, mass or count, abstract, concrete or collective?) but what matters most is for us to learn to correctly use them in sentences!

slide4

Let us look at the following situations:

  • Situation 1: The girls were informed of their 1st speaking activity in L.A. last week. Reema will be presenting on Friday and she is just so thrilled and eager to share her favorite book with her classmates. As soon as she learned about the task, she could not wait for it!
  • What word best describes Reema’s feelings?
  • happiness C. anxiety
  • excitement D. luck
slide5

Situation 2: While his wife was in the delivery room, Mr. Suarez could not stop worrying about what would happen. He kept on moving in the waiting room and he could feel himself shaking. He could not do anything but wait and hope for the best.

  • What does Mr. Suarez feel?
  • sadness C. anxiety
  • commitment D. love

Situation 3: Being the eldest in the village, Tata Matu is looked up to. He is 108 years old and almost all the villagers seek advice from him. He is consulted for his good judgment, opinions and decisions about everything.

What does Tata Matu have?

A. strength C. kindness

B. wisdom D. patience

slide7

In observing correct subject-verb agreement in sentences, there are two parts of that we should look at.

What are those parts? Of course, the subject and the verb!

Do the subject and the verb agree in terms of number?

slide8

Subject-Verb Agreement Rules:

  • If the subject is singular (only 1 doer )the verb that follows it has an –s or –es.
  • Examples:
  • Theteacheroften givesquizzes.
  • My momgoes to the gym daily.

Choose the correct verb form.

The lady (brew, brews) coffee every morning.

My dad (sing, sings) in the shower regularly

The books (is, are) properly kept in the cabinet .

The teacher (put, puts) on his eyeglasses before reading the newspaper.

Subject-Verb Agreement Rules:

  • If the subject is plural (many doers) and the pronouns Iand you, the verb that follows it is in the base/original form.

Examples:

  • The teachers often give quizzes.
  • My parentsgo the gym daily.
  • I offer help to the ones in need.
  • Youare special!
