Transcript of Simple Sentences Unit: Nov 12th - 16th

How can we make simple sentences? Simple Sentences ELACC3L1. Demonstrate command of the conventions of standard English grammar and usage when writing or speaking.
i. Produce simple, compound, and complex sentences. Our BIG QUESTION for the day:
What does a simple sentence look like? All pencils are down and all ears and eyes are on the teacher as SOON as she needs your attention (1,2,3 eyes on me....1,2 eyes on YOU)
Always listen carefully & follow directions the FIRST time they are given.
Respect the speaker who is speaking.
Raise your hands if you wish to share something, NO BLURTING OUT.
Treat others how you wish to be treated.
Always be your best and do your best! Ms. LEAH'S CLASSROOM EXPECTATIONS
Party at the end of the week or No Party?
The choice is up to you and your behavior! Before we get started...what do you already KNOW about simple sentences?

Let's fill out the "K" in our KWL Chart That's a great start!

Let's look at the definition of a simple sentence:

A sentence consisting of only ONE thought, with a single subject and predicate. So then what's a subject and what's a predicate....? I say SUBJECT you say NOUN!


I say PREDICATE you say VERB!

VERB! The simple subject tells exactly whom or what the sentence is about. It is the main word in the complete subject. The Pilgrims traveled to the new world by ship. The simple predicate tells us what the simple subject is doing. It is the main verb in the complete predicate. The Pilgrims traveled to the new world by ship. Let's Practice Together! Victor runs.
Dakota likes big rigs.
Briona and Alex M. are shopping.
Eric and Zachery play baseball together.
Guadalupe loves polar bears.
Chakayla is playing outside.
Mrs.Jerri loves to sing in her free time! Rules to remember during your writing: 1) Simple sentences can be very short, consisting of only one word (one noun) for the subject and one word (one verb) for the predicate.

Casey plays.

2) Simple sentences can still have more detail without the use of any conjunctions (and, or, but, so, etc.)

My family travels to New York every year for Christmas. Let's look back to our KWL Charts. Let's think about the new things we learned today about simple sentences:

Let's fill out the "L" in our KWL Chart How many people can now answer our BIG QUESTION for the day? What does a simple sentence look like? Who thinks they can give us an example of their own simple sentence? http://www.schooltube.com/video/ddb9fa8ba3e54ddf1608/Schoolhouse-Rock-Mr-Morton Now that we have figured out what we KNOW about simple sentences....what do we WANT to know about simple sentences? So now we know our simple sentences MUST have a subject and a predicate, but what other forms can they come in...? RULE THREE: Simple sentences can be declarative (make a statement) or interrogative (ask a question): How many thoughts do I have? ONE! Taliyah likes to play soccer.
What is Keevon's favorite color? RULE FOUR: Simple sentences can have a verb in any tense (past, present, and future), mood or voice. Enrique ate hot dogs for dinner last night.
Gabby is riding her bike outside.
Cole will play football later this weekend. So now that we know all the different ways simple sentences can be made: Very short (only one subject & one predicate)
We can still add detail without the use of a conjunction (and, or, but, so, etc.)
They can be declarative (make a statement)
Or interrogative (ask a question)
and they can come in any tense (past, present, or future) Let's test your simple sentence skills.... Directions for our next activity: Each of you is going to receive a strip of paper.
You will notice that your paper only shows half of a sentence, your job is to find your MATCH.
Some of you will have the subject(s) of the sentence and your partner will have the predicate(s) of the sentence.
Once you have found your missing piece of your sentence, you and your partner will complete the sheet of paper given to you and follow the directions accordingly.
When we have all found our pairs and completed our sheets, we will discuss which pairs made up the simple sentences and which did not. Now that we have completed our activity, who thinks they are simple sentence masters? Let's go back to our Big Question: What does a simple sentence look like? What about this tricky question: How is a simple sentence different from a compound sentence? Let Mrs.Marcy's class watch this! DAY THREE Rule Five: Simple sentences CAN have a compound subject. Ms. Leah and Mrs.Kendra are riding together. Rule Six Simple Sentences CAN have a compound predicate. Rico plays and runs outside. Rule Seven Simple sentences can contain BOTH a compound subject and a compound predicate. The lion and the cub run and pounce on its prey. Let's play a quick game together for practice with compound subjects and compound predicates.... Ms. Leah
THE CLASS DAY THREE "The subject is the WHO, the predicate is what they DO!" The couple is singing on stage at the fair. http://www.quia.com/cb/38873.html Now let's do some writing! I want you to choose from the following starter sentences for your writing piece today: •How could you help someone less fortunate on Thanksgiving, or anytime of the year?
If you were a turkey, how would you feel about Thanksgiving? OUR BIG QUESTIONS! How can we make and use a simple sentence?
How is a simple sentence different from a compound sentence?
