Clip to ScrapBook #2

I have my students fold their notebook paper down the middle. They label the left hand side "WHO" and the right hand side "WHAT". Later the "who" becomes the "subject" and the "what" becomes the "predicate". I start by giving a few examples of "who"-subjects, then the "what"-predicates.

ex. WHO (did) WHAT
The colorful kite / soared high in the sky.
The stars / twinkled in the night.

Then I have the students begin giving me the "Who did What".
When they are editing their own sentences, I have them draw a line between the "who" and the "what". It takes lots of practice.
