Teaching and Learning Resources from Diane Hawkins


Positive and negative sentences

Positve sentences tell us what something is, has or does.

The cat is black. It plays with string. It has kittens.

Negative sentences tell us the opposite. The word not is included in the sentence. Don't forget that not is often shortened to n't. For example, can not becomes can't, does not becomes doesn't and so on.

The cat isn't black. It doesn't play with string. It hasn't got kittens.
