Who It’s For: Beginning Teachers, Helpers, & Language Learners Expanding Simple Sentences with (Non-Verb) Elements   

Why It’s Useful: Aimed at instructors / students familiar with forms of be and base verbs, these assorted excerpts draw attention to prepositions used in place / time expressions and phrasal verbs; possessive forms that are nouns, pronouns, and adjectives; and pronouns; and indirect objects in full sentences.  Use them for “breaks from core grammar” or for review.  

What You’ll Do:

[2] Introduce, practice, and/or review how to “Express Possession.” on Pages 51 to 53 of Chapter 2, Part One: Possessive Forms. In the Strip Story “This is our new house” + its Exercises, you’ll get and make sentences with possessive nouns, pronouns, and adjectives (Examples: That’s Edgar and Maria’s room. It’s theirs. But these aren’t their clothes.)
