Opener Sentence
Opener Sentence
The opener sentence is a
dependent
clause.
A dependent clause is a sentence that cannot stand on its own. It depends on something else to make it stand.
Dependent clauses start with AAAWWUBBIS or other phrases or words that signal you to put a comma after the dependent clause.
A dependent clause is is never a sentence because the thought is incomplete.
Incorrect example:
After I got home from school. (What did you do? The reader will get confused here.)

Correct Example:
After I got home from school, I had a snack. (This sentence has a dependent clause, a comma, an independent clause, and a period.)
Transition words include
also
in addition
and
likewise
in the first place
again
moreover
Example: At the grocery store I am going to get eggs, milk, pancake mix, butter, syrup, orange juice, strawberries, and blueberries.
