The KISS Grammar Workbooks Back to September Menu

Directions: Working sentence by sentence, place parentheses around each prepositional phrase. Then underline every finite verb twice, and every subject once. Label the complements (PA, PN, IO, or DO).


The Pastor and the Bear
(contributed by Alyse Fielder, Suffolk, N.Y.)

     A Pastor fibs and takes a Sunday off to go hunting. He slides down 

a muddy hill, loses his hunting rifle and injures his leg. As he looks up,

he is face to face with a large hungry bear. The Pastor immediately 

prays to God and promises to never fib again nor take off another 

Sunday in search of his own satisfaction. He prays that God has made 

this bear a Christian. The bear falls down on his knees, folds his hands

and raises his face to the sky and prays, "Thank you Lord, for the 

food I am about to receive. Amen."
