This week, students will need to know how to identify direct and indirect objects in a sentence.  In a sentence, a direct object is a person, place, or thing that receives the action of the verb.  The direct object can be either a noun or a pronoun (it, someone, him). 

Example:  The dog loved the boy.  The verb is loved, and the direct object is boy.

An indirect object is a noun or a pronoun that comes between the verb and the direct object.  An indirect object tells to or for whom or what the action of the verb is done.  A sentence that has an indirect object must have a direct object. 

Example:  Papa gave his horse a pat on the head.  The direct object is pat and the indirect object is horse.


Students will be bringing home a couple of study guides towards the beginning of the week.  We will make separate answer keys for them so that students can quiz themselves or have another person quiz them over this as practice.  The test will be Friday and will be multiple choice.
