HAPPY DAYS


by Kate Greenaway

“Are you going next week to see Phillis and Phoebe?

Phillis on Monday will be just fourteen.

She says we shall all have our tea in the garden,

And afterwards have some nice games on the green.

“I wanted a new frock, but mother said, ‘No,’

So I must be content with my old one you see.

But then white is so pretty, and kind Aunt Matilda

Has sent down a beautiful necklace for me.”

Linking Verbs

Yo! I have a little somethin’
To teach to you.
It’s the linking verb rap
And it’s easy to do!

A linking verb connects
A subject with a noun
And if you’ve done it right,
You can turn it around.

An adjective can be
In the predicated part.
Know what you’re doin’,
Then you’ll be smart!

Look very carefully
And you will see
Most of the verbs
Are forms of “be”

Am, is, are, was, were

These are the past
And present of the verb.

Learn “seem,” “appear,”
And “become,”
Then you will know
That you are done!

Raise Your Hand

Roses are red.
Lettuce is green.
If you raise your hand,
it will be seen.
