Finite Verb or Verbal?
Based on “Sally Migrundy”

Written & Illustrated by Johnny Gruelle

1. Place parentheses ( ) around each prepositional phrase. 
2. Underline verbs twice, their subjects once, and label complements (PA, PN, IO, or DO).
3. Place brackets [ ] around each subordinate clause. Above the opening bracket, label the function of noun clauses. From clauses that function as adjectives or adverbs, draw an arrow from the opening bracket to the word that the clause modifies.
4. Place a vertical line after each main clause.
5. Label each interjection ("Inj"), each noun used as an adverb ("NuA"), and each example of direct address ("DirA").

     The little bottle floated along, tumbling over the tiny falls and tinkling ripples

and bobbing up and down in the deep, blue, quiet, places until finally it floated 

to Sally Migrundy’s and came to rest in the mass of pretty flowers where Sally

Migrundy came each morning to dip her tiny bucket of water.

     And so Sally Migrundy found the tiny bottle and took it into her tiny house 

to read the tiny note she saw inside.
