Today we had a special visitor, Mrs. Ranney! She is a good friend and colleague of Mrs. Yollis.
We were talking about the two parts of a sentence, the subject and the predicate.
A subject tells WHO or WHAT the sentence is about.
A predicate tells what the subject did or does.
Mrs. Ranney introduced the class to a masterpiece sentence.
A masterpiece sentence is a descriptive sentence with a lot of detail.
Mrs. Ranney finish the following sentence for us:
The bear _______________________________________.
Here is her masterpiece sentence:
