1. Five-minute freewrite.

2. Vocabulary notes. We took notes on SAT words #3 and #4 and word part notes #11-#15. If you were absent, follow this link to copy down the notes onto V1.

3. Notes on how to diagram a sentence. We took notes on G1, Four Basic Parts of a Sentence. If you were absent, make your own G1 on a sheet of notebook paper with these definitions:

Subject: The thing or person the sentence is about. Goes with the predicate verb of the sentence.

Predicate: The main verb of the sentence. What the subject does. Complete predicate: the verb and everything related to the verb.

Direct Object: Who/what the verb does. I sing. Sing what? Songs. Songs is the direct object.

Indirect Object: Who/what the verb is directing the action towards. I sing songs. To whom? To the stars. I sing the stars songs. The stars is the indirect object.
