Take the Helmet...

Okay... we had some fun today!  So let me share!

From Ephesians 6 (which we memorized last year in Foundations), we pulled a verse and analyzed it (most of it anyway Hot).

Here is the verse...

Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

Do you see the purpose? Imperative.  Which means the subject is what? Implied 'you'.  The verb? Take. (should be capitalized in the diagram below :))Do you see the preposition used?  Of.   Do you see the different noun cases/roles? Direct object and object of the preposition. Do you see the dual or compound direct object?  Helmet and sword.   Do you see the coordinating conjunction 'and' (which we are going to touch on more in week 6)?

Note: Today, we left the dependent adjectival clause (who/which clause) alone. 

Here is our board setup for this sentence...

I enjoyed choosing to focus on prepositions this week... as we are working with prepositional openers in our US History-Based IEW writing.

$$$  You DO KNOW that you can get a 4' x8' show tile (shown above) from Lowe's Home Improvement stores for about $15...  It is our official white board.  $$$

Have fun with words and sentence structures!


  1. Oh, I love that. We may have to "borrow" your idea soon!

    Beth, from Pages of Our Life, was telling me about you. It was nice to "meet" you. I will be back!


  2. Wait - you left the Who/Which clause alone? Was that only at home, or in class as well?
    Your comment was powerful about the father/daughter post. Can I quote you in my next one with a link to your site?...More visitors? :)


So ... how about you?
