Story Project: Simple Sentences

An eternity ago, when I went to school, we started learning to read with the Dick and Jane stories. Our first grade readers were filled with simple sentences like we're studying this week. Below is my version of a basic Dick and Jane story. It's a very silly story, but it illustrates the basic concepts of our lesson this week. So go have a little fun with it.

Lesson Two Story Project Instructions

1. Copy and paste the story below into a static item in your port.

2. Identify the subject of each sentence with bold and the verb in purple.

3. Identify nouns with blue, pronouns with teal, and article adjectives with tan.

4. Identify the direct object (if there is one) of each sentence with italics.

5. Submit your coded story with your Lesson Two Assignments as a bitem link under the thread "Lesson Two Assignments."

Lesson Two Story Project: Ms. Katz's Dick and Jane Story

I did the first paragraph so you can see what your work should look like.

Dick runs. Jane sees the flowers. Stop! Stop! Dick jumps!

Jane smells the flowers. Dick picks flowers. Jane smiles. Spot eats the flowers. Jane cries.

Mother hugs Jane. Dick pats Spot.

Mother bakes cookies. Spot steals a cookie. He eats the cookies. Spot makes a mess.

Jane calls Mother. She scolds Spot. Dick laughs. Mother cleans the mess.

Jane helps Mother. They bake cookies. Everyone eats the cookies.
