Action Verbs - 6th Grade Grammar

Action Verbs 

An action verb expresses a physical or mental action. An action verb must agree with its subject. 
Examples:
        Jack practices the piano everyday.
        My dog chased the turkeys.
        The turkeys trotted across the ice. 
        They slipped and slid all over the place. 
        I laughed when I saw them. 
        Did anyone take a picture of them? 
        They disappeared before I found my camera.

Direct Objects and Indirect Objects

direct object receives the action of the verb in a sentence and tells whom or what is affected by the verb’s action. 
Examples:
        Jack practices the piano everyday.
        Jack gave his dog a treat.
        Mom bought tickets.
        My sister created a costume
        My brother gave my sister advice
        The actors rehearsed their lines before the show. 
        The comedian told the audience funny jokes
        Who handed the singer flowers as she performed?

An indirect object appears before the direct object and tells to whom or for whom the action is done.
Examples:
        Savion gave his dog a treat.
        Mom gave my sister the tickets.
        My brother gave my sister advice. 
        The comedian told the audience funny jokes. 
        Who handed the singer flowers as she performed?
