Directions: In the scripts below, circle in purple two nouns that name a person and one noun that names a place. Circle in red two verbs. Underline the compound words. BONUS: Find and cross out the contractions. Write the two words that make up the contraction.



A noun names a person, place, thing, or idea.

A verb names describe an action, state, or occurrence.

A compound word is two words joined together to make a new word with a new meaning.

Example script of asking good questions:
Ken: What did you do yesterday?
Anya: I went on the hayride at the pumpkin patch. Did you go yet?
Ken: I haven’t, but I want to! Was it fun or scary?
Anya: I thought it was fun. Have you ever been on a hayride before?
Ken: No, I have not ever been on the hayride. Were there other things to do?
Anya: They had some other rides, apple bobbing, and crafts to make. I had fun.

Example script of not asking good questions:
Anya: Hi, Ken, how are you today?
Ken: I’m ok.
Anya: Did you go on the hayride at the pumpkin patch yet?
Ken: No. I like video games. Do you like them too?
Anya: Yes, but we were talking about the pumpkin patch, not video games. Have you been to the pumpkin patch before? This was my first time.
Ken: Yes. I like pizza too. It’s my favorite food.
