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.
