10:30:11:00-Basic Skills

A noun phrase includes one noun (as well as words like the, it, you, I etc.) it, for example: The dog. In the classroom, children might be asked to look at noun phrases and turn them into expanded noun phrases, for example changing 'The  dog' to 'The big, furry black dog'. By adding more information about the noun (eg. by using adjectives to describe the noun), turns noun phrases into expanded noun phrases. When I ask the children to include expanded noun phrases in their work, I will often ask them to include 3 adjectives, separated by commas. For example: The dejected, lonely, fury bear sat in the corner, staring sadly at the door.  You can also add extra  information by including relative clauses like: 'which' or 'who' or 'that'. e.g. The big, furry black dog, who had a sore, poorly leg, limped back to his cosy home.


Turn these noun phrases into expanded noun phrases:

1) They  have a car.

2) The girl danced.

3 He has a dog.

4) My teacher.

5) That shark.
