Dad caught fish and cooked them for supper.
This is a question from a test that my son missed; he is in the second grade.
The instructions for the test are as follows:
Put one line under the naming part of the sentence, and two lines under the telling part.
My B average from high school English tells me the following:
- Naming Part = Subject
- Telling Part = Predicate
- The subject of the second independent clause is omitted because it is understood to be Dad (What is the term for this?)
What part of the above sentence would you put a single line under? What about the double line? Specifically, I'm curious about the conjunction and. Is that naming, telling or neither?
