On A Clear Noun You Can See Forever

  1. 1. Nouns<br />
  2. 2. Here’s a Sentence That Doesn’t Say Much:<br />The man slipped on some food and hurt his leg.<br />We don’t know this person. We can’t see him. <br />Is he a minister, a thief, a fireman, a fruit peddler?<br />How was his leg hurt? Was it broken? Were bones sticking out? <br /> Where did this accident occur? <br /> When did it happen?<br />
  3. 3. Here’s a Sentence That Gets Our Attention:<br /> Mr. Suave, our new history teacher, slipped on a blob of pudding in the lunchroom yesterday and cracked his shin.<br /> We can see him now. We know who he is because the nouns help make the image clearer and more interesting.<br />
  4. 4. Group Time<br />Sentence 1: A dog came to the school and made a scene.<br />Sentence 2: A girl jumped into the water and saved her little sister.<br />Sentence 3: Two boys ate all the food in the refrigerator.<br />
