2 Essential Question Write the essential question down in your ELA interactive notebook. How can I tell the difference between a subject and a predicate?

3 A Complete Subject The first part of a sentence tells who or what the sentence is about. It is the “who” part of the sentence, and it is also called the subject. The subject contains nouns in it. For example: ▫Jonas likes to play soccer on Saturday afternoons. ▫The cars were backed up for three miles. ▫Trinity, Kyle, and Diamond were going to the mountains for a short vacation.

4 A Complete Predicate The second part of the sentence tells what the subject is doing, the “do” part of the sentence. This is also known as the predicate. The predicate part of the sentence contains verbs in it. For example: ▫Jonas likes to play soccer on Saturday afternoons. ▫The cars were backed up for three miles. ▫Trinity, Kyle, and Diamond were going to the mountains for a short vacation.
