Write Right Now By Jodi Fulks Information Taken From the Write Away Writing Sentences • A sentence is a group of words that tells a complete idea. • Every Sentence has a naming part and a telling part. Subject • The naming part is also called the subject. • The subject names who or what the sentence is about. Grandpa sings. The ball bounces. Verbs • The telling part is also called the verb. • The verb usually tells what the subject is doing. Grandpa sings. The ball bounces. Other Parts • We usually add words to the subject or verb to make the idea clearer. Grandpa sings in the shower. The ball bounces very high. Subject/Verb Agreement • The subject and verb must go together in a sentence. • Singular subjects go with singular verbs. • Singular means “one.” Jenny loves milk. • Plural subjects go with plural verbs. • Plural means “more than one.” My cousins love juice. Sentence Problem • Try not to run too many sentences together using the words “and then”. Too many “and then’s”: Jose ate his lunch really fast and then he jumped up and then he ran outside. Better: Jose ate his lunch really fast. Then he jumped up and ran outside.
