Im glad to announce that there are


no absences today.

Maam, last time, we had an


introduction of adjectives. We

sentence.
None, maam.

about our topic last time.


What did you learn last time?
Are there any questions or
clarifications regarding that?
If none, then let us proceed to
our lesson for today.
C. MOTIVATION
Before we proceed to our
main lesson, I am going to
give each one of you a picture
of a famous painting. At the
back of it, I want you to write
3 sentences describing the
painting. Use adjectives.
We can compare adjectives
into paintings. Sentences are
like the blank canvass and
adjectives are like the colours
that add beauty to the
painting.

Painting #1: American Gothic by


Grant Wood (1930)

Painting #2: Young Lady in a Boat


by James
Tissot (1870)

Painting #3: Kapistahan by Mike


Blanko (2005)

Student 1: Nouns are the names of


persons, places, things, animals,
and ideas.
D. DISCUSSION
Now let us proceed with our
lesson. Who remembers our
lesson in nouns? Who can tell me
what nouns are?
Very good. Now there are two
kinds of nouns: the proper noun
and the common noun. Who can
tell me the difference?

Student 2: Common nouns are the


general names of persons, places,
and things. They begin with small
letters.
Proper nouns are the specific
names of persons, places and
things. They begin with capital
letters.
Student 3:
Proper Nouns: President Noynoy
Aquino, Metro Manila, Jolibee

Good job! Who can give me 3


examples of proper nouns and 3
examples of common nouns?
Very good. Today, we are going to
learn how to change proper and
common nouns into adjectives.
Let us begin with proper nouns.
(Write on the board the following
proper nouns)
Italy
Shakespeare
Rizal
Italy is a proper noun because it
is a specific name of a country.
We can make it into an adjective
by adding the suffix ian and
removing the last letter which is
y. It becomes Italian.
Shakespeare is also a proper
noun because it is a specific
name of a person? We can make
it into an adjective the same way
we did in Italy. Who can try to
do it here on the board?
Rizal is also a specific name of a
person. We can make it into an
adjective by only adding the
suffix ian. It becomes Rizalian.
These are called proper
adjectives. Who can guess why
this is called proper adjectives?

Student 1: (Writes on the board)


Shakespearian

Student 2: It is called proper


adjectives because they begin with
capital letters.
Student 3: It is called proper
adjectives because they came from
a proper noun.
Student 1: Italian food is my
favorite.

That is correct. What else?


That is also correct. Now, lets try
to use these in a sentence. Who
wants to give me a sentence
using the word Italian?
Very good. Italian describes the
noun food. Therefore we know
that his/her favorite food comes
from Italy. How about

Student 2: Shakespearian plays are


often hard to understand.

Shakespearian.

proper adjectives:
