1. Place parentheses ( ) around each prepositional phrase.
2. Underline verbs twice, their subjects once, and label complements (“PA,” “PN,” “IO,” or “DO”).
3. Place brackets [ ] around each subordinate clause. If the clause functions as a noun, label its function. If it functions as an adjective or adverb, draw an arrow from the opening bracket to the word that the clause modifies.
4. Place a vertical line after each main clause. 

     Bonnie Blue Bell was a little girl who loved all birds. She

was always kind to them. She fed and watched over them. 

Soon the birdies grew to know her, and they would watch 

for her coming. When other little children would approach,

they would fly away, but whenever they saw Bonnie Blue

Bell they would fly to her without fear, eat out of her 

hands, and let her fondle and carry them.

     Do you not think that even little birdies are quite smart 

and soon learn to know their friends? And when they do 

make friends, they always trust them and are not afraid.
