English Gr.5

Draw one line under each action verb and 2 lines under each linking verb. Sentences with linking verbs, circle the word and the predicate that renames or describes the subject. Write noun pronoun for adjectives in the blank to describe the word. In sentences with action verb, circle the direct object if there is one.
