What are some sentences with a noun, verb, and adjective? Which word is which?

The dog is cute.

Here, "dog" is the noun, "cute" is the adjective and "is" is the verb.

Nouns are people/animals, places and things.
Adjectives describe nouns.
Verbs are the action that someone/something is doing.

Another example:
The beautiful flower is wilting.

Here, "flower" is the noun,
"beautiful" is the adjective,
and "wilting" is the verb.

Another example:
A giant log fell on my foot.

Here, both "log" and "foot" are nouns.
So that means both "giant" and "my" are adjectives, as they are both describing the nouns.
"Fell" is the verb.
