I want to let you know how awesome Mrs. Urquijo is, some of you know that, but she is a fantastic teacher and I expect the best behavior for her.

Starter: (Ten Minutes)

A direct object receives the action performed by the subject. The

verb used with a direct object is always an action verb. Example: The

car hit the tree. To find the direct object, say the subject and verb

followed by whom or what. The car hit whom or what? Tree answers

the question so tree is the direct object.

If nothing answers the question whom or what, you know that there

is no direct object. Example: The car sped past. The car sped whom

or what? Nothing answers the question so the sentence has no direct


The direct object must be a noun or pronoun. A direct object will

never be in a prepositional phrase. The direct object will not equal

the subject as the predicate nominative, nor does it have a linking

verb as a predicate nominative sentences does.

Instructions: Find the subjects, verbs, and direct objects in the

following sentences.

1. Paul built a dollhouse for Hayley.

2. The club members held a party in the park.

3. The audience cheered their favorite actors during the play.

4. Tiny children prefer short stories.

5. Terri really dialed a wrong number last night.

Mrs. Urquijo will Answer them when you are all done.
Much Ado About Nothing: Have the timekeeper in each class give you the starting point. Please use your headphones and watch 15 minutes from that point. Each class is at a different starting point. (15 minutes) To view the video log into Gmail and go to Google Classroom and look at your latest assignment. Do not turn anything in. You can slide the player over to the minute and second mark as needed. Email me if there are problems.
With about ten minutes left in class explain to Mrs. Urquijo what has happened in the play, and what you watched/read today. This should take you until the bell rings. If you have a little bit of extra time work on Vocab or Newsela articles.
