Subject, Verb, Object

Watch this review of subject, verb, and object. Here is Part 1 (7 minutes):

and here is Part 2 (8 minutes). In Part 2, the teacher introduces the predicate ("the rest" of the sentence after you find the subject).

So to find the subject, ask, "Who or what is the sentence about?" 
To find the verb, ask "What does (or did, or will do...) the subject do?" 
To find the object, ask, "Who or what does (or did, or will...) the subject see/like/want/learn...?" 

Finally, watch a short video about prepositional phrases. We will learn about object pronouns tomorrow.
