  27. 27. The Subject Is the Noun of the sentence, The sentence is also based upon the Noun In, “The beautiful ballerina leaped into the air like a deer.” Ballerina is the subject In, “The Seminole Indians traveled over the water in the dugout canals.” The quickest way to find the subject is to read the sentence carefully The subject can be singular or plural and 1 or 2 words
  28. 28. The Predicate The predicate names the verb in the sentence that tells what is happening In, “The beautiful ballerina leaped into the air like a deer.” leaped is the predicate In, “ The Seminole Indians traveled over water in the dugout canals.” the predicate is traveled.” The easiest way to find the predicate is to find what the subject is doing.
