"Good morning, everyone! I'm glad you're here. Your warm-up is on the board, so let's get going! Ron, take out a piece of paper. Where's your pencil? Can someone lend Ron a piece of paper? Use scratch paper. Joe, why haven't you started yet? It's on the board. Where's your pencil? What's wrong with your pen? Where's your paper? Deja, thank you for the pass. Where's your paper? It's on the board. Okay, let's check our work! Identify the verb first. Larry? No, not 'job'. Josh? No, not 'I'. Keyona? No, not 'my'. So, the last word is? Ron? Not 'I'; we've already given that answer. Kim? YES! The verb is 'love'! Great! Ron, where's your pencil? Justin, give Ron his pencil please. Josh, do not throw that up here. Chris, stop talking. The warm-up is on the front board. Right here. Yes. Where's your paper? Your paper? Why is it on Dwayne's desk? Dwayne, bring it up here, please. OKAY! Let's find the pronouns! What is a pronoun? No, Keyona, that's a regular noun...no, no, that's an adjective. Okay, let's see...an example? Let's take a look at our notes from yesterday. YESTERDAY. Where's your notebook? No, you may not call your mom, you must come prepared for class. No. No. Tremain, out in the hall. Joe, where's your paper? Where's your notebook? Why? Where's your passport? No, you may not get it without your passport. Brandon, wake up. Keyona, a pronoun is...no, that's a verb. Let's look at any words...if I said, Josh, go out in the hall. Because I said not to throw things. Where's your paper? Who has their notebooks open? It's on the front board..."
