These are the concepts you have learned so far. You should be familiar with these for the next quiz:

What is a noun? (A noun is a word that stands for a person, place, thing, or idea. e.g., girl, Kansas, hammer, happiness)
What is a proper noun? (A proper noun is a specific noun in a category; these need to be capitalized. e.g., Susan, Kansas, Bobcat, God)
What is a common noun? (A common noun refers to a general noun category; these do not need to be capitalized. e.g. person, state, truck)
Be able to write words as nouns. (e.g., a taste, the taste= nouns. "We taste." "Taste" here is an action verb. "A run," "the run" are nouns. In "I run...." "run" is an action verb.)
Be able to identify nouns in a sentence. (The nouns in the previous sentence are "nouns" and "sentence."
What are some noun markers that will help you identify nouns? (The, a, and an are good noun markers; -ness, -tion, -ity, and plural "s" words are good indicators of nouns, too.)
What is an abstract noun? (A noun that can't be touched, one that isn't concrete; a concept or feeling such as happiness, sadness, love)
Be able to use a noun as a subject of a sentence. ("The girl went home." Girl is the subject, and it is a noun. "Home" is a noun, but it is not the subject. To use "home" as a subject, you might write, "Her home looks welcoming."
Be able to diagram sentences with a noun as a subject. (See weekly reviews for this.)
Be able to diagram sentences with a noun marker as a modifier of a noun. (See weekly reviews for this; "the" comes off of the main subject line in a left-to-right slant, under the noun it precedes.)

What is a pronoun? (A pronoun is a word that takes the place of a noun.)
Be able to identify and write the case, number, gender, person, and antecedent of a pronoun. (Look on your weekly reviews or previous quizzes for this. Case is subjective, objective, or possessive. Number can be
singular or plural. Gender= male or female. Person = 1st, 2nd, or 3rd. The antecedent is the noun that the pronoun replaces.)
What are indefinite pronouns? (Indefinite pronouns refer to no noun in particular but still replace nouns, like all good pronouns.)
Give examples of indefinite pronouns that are singular, plural, or both. (Use your indefinite pronoun worksheet for this. Singular= anyone; plural=few; the words "some," "any," "all," "most," and "none" can be either singular or plural.
Know how to make a verb and a possessive pronoun agree with an indefinite pronoun. (Try weekly review exercises and previous quizzes. Is it "Anyone can get his backpack stolen" or "Anyone can get their backpack stolen." It's "his" because "anyone" always takes a singular verb and must agree with singular possessive pronouns. Is it "All goes to that movie" or "All go to that movie"? It is the second one because "all" is a plural indefinite pronoun and must take a verb that agrees with a plural noun.)
What are reflexive pronouns? (Reflexive pronouns have "-self" at the end of them: myself, yourself, himself, herself, itself, ourselves, yourselves, themselves. They refer back to the group mentioned already.
Know how to substitute pronouns for nouns, using the same number, case, etc. (Substitute the proper pronoun for the words listed: The girls went to the class= They went to it.)
Could you identify a pronoun, given the number, case, and person? (I hope so. Check your weekly reviews and quizzes for practice.)
Given a paragraph, know how to identify the pronouns. (Again, practice using previous quizzes and weekly reviews.)
Be able to use a pronoun as a subject of a sentence. ("He went to it." "He" is a pronoun acting as the subject. "It" is a pronoun but doesn't act as the subject.)
Be able to diagram sentences with a pronoun as a subject. (Use your weekly reviews and practice sheets for this.)
What is a verb in general? (A verb is a word that expresses action or state of being/condition.)
Define linking verb. (A linking verb connects the subject to a word or words in the predicate.)
Define action verb. (An action verb expresses doing; it is what the subject does or is.)
Define helping verb. (A helping verb is a verb that assists another verb; these often are used to show a different tense. e.g., IS running, WILL BE running.)
Be able to use words as each of the above types of verbs. (Try ones from your quizzes.)
Distinguish "to be" helping verbs from "to be" linking verbs. (e.g., AM studying (helping) vs. I AM nice (linking).)
Distinguish action verbs from linking (condition) verbs. (Tasting peas vs. tasting good)
Know how to use words as linking verbs, action verbs, nouns, and adjectives. (The taste vs. tastes good vs. taste the pizza vs. tasty cookies)
Be able to separate the subject of a sentence from its simple predicate (verb). See diagramming practice on weekly reviews as well as websites below.
Be able to recognize a verb phrase (helping verb and main verb used together). (a helping verb or verbs with the main verb; for example, in WILL BE + RUNNING, the verb phrase is WILL BE RUNNING.)
Be able to diagram sentences with a subject and a verb or verb phrase. See diagramming practice on weekly reviews as well as websites below.
