Loud music makes me want to dance.

That movie made me sad.

While the student is reading, write the three sentences on the blackboard. Then ask, What verb do you see in all three sentences in the Grammar Focus? (make in the present and in the past tense) Let students underline the verb in all three sentences. Then underline the word that comes right after that verb (me). Ask, What does this word tell us? (It tells who had the feeling-me, her, etc.) Circle the ending of each sentence. Get a student to come to the blackboard and point to the circled words that are adjectives and read these words to the class (tense, sad).

Other students repeat. Then let students make up similar sentences with the verb make that talk about feelings and have adjective at the end. Write on the blackboard:

             makes me         . Let students work alone. Then ask some students to read their sentences.
