3.1 In-Class re-solve homework sentences with reflections Red = mistake Purple = what should've been, but what I forgot
I thought that "worthwhile" was an adverb, because in my mind I somehow reffered to time, but instead it was an adjective, which makes sense because it links back to "living (a life)". I also forgot to write the part of speech and the function of certain words. I also had my doubts about the predicate being a linking verb, and I don't really know why, but then I realized, if the predicate can be replaced by "to be" and the subject complement describes the subject, it's a linking verb.
I found this sentence incredibly easy. We were covering all the verbals this class and the participle was the first thing that caught my eye, maybe because the participle was "procrastinating". All the others words to me were also very straight forward as in I could instantly see what they were, both as part of speech and fuction.
Here again I forgot to name the part of speech of "I". And I couldn't quite figure what "before" was. I thought it was an adverb, because it refers to time, but I just left it open instead and then when the video was shown, it made sense "before" to be a conjunction, even though it's at the beginning of the sentence because it connects the two sentences together.
Whilst comparing my answer to the actual answer of this sentence, I noticed I forgot to name sesame as a noun. If I reflect on my past thoughts, I can kind of see why I forgot to put that, because all I was probably thinking was that sesame said something about dressing, therefore it's only an adjective. But sesame, naturally, is a noun. Other then that, I see no mistakes, nor forgotten "codified" words.
3.2 In-Class Sentence
It surprised me how many prepositional phrases there were in this sentence, that I started doubting whether or not it even was or if that maybe it was one complete prepositional. Yet, after I thought about it more that wouldn´t make sense. I also doubted if `off` was a preposition because I thought it might be a part of jumped, like what we call "een vast voorzetsel" in the Netherlands which means that it's part of the predicate, but it wasn't and "vast voorzetsel" translated was fixed preposition, so that assured me that it was indeed a preposition.

In this sentence I had to think twice if "seem" was a linking verb or not, but then I replaced the predicate with a conjugated from of "to be" and the sentence still made sense and the potential subject complement indeed complemented the subject. But, I just thought that plan would be the subject complement, but because it was already an object (object of the preposition), the subject complement was to be placed underneath the entire phrase.

In this sentence I was doubting if both "to be's" were a subject, but because "but" is a conjunction I just figured that there were two subjects. I was also doubting if "not" was an adjective or an adverb. I chose adverb instead of adjective, because in the Netherlands I learned that "not" or "niet" was always an adverb and I stuck to what I've learned there - it was quite confusing though seeing that it linked to a noun (verbal).
I found this sentence one of the easiest sentences we had to solve in Codify this sesson. I didn't think there was anything difficult or confusing or doubtful in this sentence. I easily figured out the infinitive's function as well by just linking it back to the word it connected to which is "precious" (precious being an adjective therefor the infinitive had to be an adverb, because that's the only part of speech that says something about an adjective).
