Directions: Underline verbs twice and subjects once.

     "Who said play hide and seek?"

     "I did, Frank."

     "Well, shut your eyes, Ned, while we go and hide."

     "Shall I stand by this tree, boys?" 

     "Yes, we will hide, and then you must try to find us."

     "Well, go and hide. One, two, three, four, five, 

six--look out for me, boys. Here I come. Ha! I see your

black cap, Frank. Come out of that barn. I spy you, Roy.

You are hid under the hay; and there is Fred in the box.

     "Now, Frank, you shut your eyes."


     "No, Fred, there is my pony, and I am going to

take a ride."

     "Well, I will get my pony, and ride too. Shall we 

have a race?" 

     "Yes, but my pony can run faster than yours."

     "If I use my whip, I can keep up with you, and 

I may pass you."

     "There is my sister. I must go and see her. What is

it, sister?"

     "Please put this shawl over me, Fred. Wrap me up

well, for it is pretty cold."

     "So kitty did not get sick, did she, sister?"

     "O no! kitty is well, but she does not like the

bath tub, Fred."
