  • This needs to be corrected. In the sentence, "Grace like to play softball," the verb "likes" is the action in the sentence, and is the key component of the predicate. If you leave the verb out of the predicate, you haven't taught your students to understand sentence structure!

  • The examples given don't have the verbs in the predicate. :( This uses the action in the infinitive phrase as verb for the sentence. Completely false!
