Makes Sense!

ALWAYS
start your sentences
off with a
CAPITAL

A subject is a NOUN.

A NOUN is a person, place, or thing.

Example:

dog
caught the ball.
An
action word
that relates to the subject of the sentence.
Example:
The dog
caught
the ball.
Every sentence has to end with a:

Period:
.
- for a statement

Question Mark:
?
- for a question

Exclamation Point:
!
- for EXCITEMENT
Read

Now what if you want to write about more than one subject?

That's called a
compound
subject
Example:

mom and dad

Examples:
Simple Subject

mom
picks me up from school

Compound Subject
My
mom and dad
pick me up from school
Let's try some together. What is the subject of the sentence and is it simple or compound?
The dog and cat are playing together.
The

Compound Subject
Billy did not go to school yesterday.
Billy

Simple Subject
Jessica and John went to the circus.
Jessica and John

Compound Subject
Just like with subjects, there are
SIMPLE
and
COMPOUND
predicates (verbs).

For example sometimes I like to
jump and dance
in the rain.


What are two things you like to do?
(Write those two things down)




Now let's put them into a sentence like this:

Verb
Miss Reed

in the rain.
Compound Verb
When you read a statement your voice goes DOWN a little at the end.
Let's practice with this sentence

When you read a question your voice goes UP at the end.
Let's practice with this sentence
What day is it?
When you read an exclamation you voice goes UP and it gets LOUDER.
Let's practice with this sentence
That was so fun!
Write your
own sentence!
Remember (You need 5 parts for it to be a COMPLETE Sentence)
