(Transitive Verb is an action verb that directs action from the performer of the action toward the receiver of the actin. The "receiver" of the action is a person place, or thing--that is , a noun or pronoun. An Intransitive Verb expresses action or tell something about the subject of the sentence but does not direct action toward another noun or pronoun.
TRANSITIVE The captain rang the bell.

Exercise 1: Write the underlined action verb in each of the sentences below. After each verb, write transitive or intransitive. If you labeled the verb transitive, identify the noun toward which the action is directed.

First time write sentence in print & pencil...revision in ink. You will rewrite these sentences in cursive and ink.
