Remember most verbs are always action, the “top 15″ linking verbs are always linking, and the “other” verbs need to be tested to see if they are action or linking. You will take a quiz on action verbs and linking verbs tomorrow, so you should look over the “top 15″ linking verbs and the “other” verbs.
Reading: I returned your chapter 3 and chapter 4 questions/vocabulary today. We analyzed your mistakes and found that a few of you are not answering the question.
