Teaching simple subjects and simple predicates to a somewhat confused Eden this morning, the conversation went something like this:
“My dress is pretty. ‘Dress’ is the simple subject, the noun. ‘Is’ is the verb, the simple predicate” I said.
Ruby was listening in, and she piped in, “My dress is pretty. Dress, pretty, and thank you for making it, Momma. That’s what you should say, Eden.”
That’s exactly what I was going for, Ruby. Exactly. Great English lesson.
