    Talking Predicates

    Hello, I am struggling. Need to know on 3rd grade level about predicates. Please tell me what part of this sentence is the predicate. The calf was in the yard. I believe "was in the yard" is correct, but I just need to know for sure.

    Re: Predicates

    Please help me with defining predicate to 3rd grader. Example "The calf was in the yard." I believe that "was in the yard" is the predicate. Correct or not?
