1 Compound Subjects and Compound Verbs Today’s Learning Objective: I will be able to identify a conjunction, a compound subject, and a compound predicate in a sentence.

2 First, Lets Review! What is the subject in the example below? The cat was left out in the rain. What is the verb in the same example? The cat was left out in the rain.

3 Yay! More Review What is the complete subject in the example below? The popular band, Mumford and Sons, created songs that are perfect to listen to while studying. What is the complete predicate in the same example? The popular band, Mumford and Sons, created songs that are perfect to listen to while studying.

4 Time to Build on Prior Knowledge Today we are going to learn about compound subjects and compound predicates. Before we go any further, what do you know about compound subjects and predicates (verbs) thus far in your academic career?

5 Lets Relate This to Reality!

6 Conjunction’s Function! Conjunctions are like links in a chain; they help you join words and ideas. The conjunction you use indicates the relationship between words or groups of words connected. Conjunctions are like links in a chain; they help you join words and ideas. The conjunction you use indicates the relationship between words or groups of words connected.

7 Coordinating Conjunctions A COORDINATING CONJUNCTION connects similar words or groups of words (i.e nouns and verbs). Coordinating conjunctions are words that help to join two separate parts of a sentence together. We can remember all the coordinating conjunctions with the acronym FANBOYS. For, And, Nor, But, Or, Yet, So

8 Compound Sentence Diagrams

9 Correlative Conjunctions CORRELATIVE CONJUNCTIONS are pairs of words that connect similar kinds of words or groups of words. CORRELATIVE CONJUNCTIONS are pairs of words that connect similar kinds of words or groups of words. Correlative conjunctions both…andEither…orNeither…nor Not only…but also Whether…or

10 Find the junction! Directions: locate all the conjunction in the examples listed below. Then on the line next to each sentence identify the type of conjunction is used in the sentence (i.e. Coordinating or Correlative). 1.Either the small van or the bus will pick us up. 2.The pen and paper contained fingerprints. 3.We will win or lose the case. 4.Every morning she both runs and swims. correlative coordinating

11 Compound Subjects The COMPOUND SUBJECT is two or more subjects (i.e. nouns or pronouns) that have the same verb and are joined by a conjunction such as and or or. The multiple nouns in compound subjects are always joined together by conjunctions. EXAMPLE: My FRIENDS AND I went to Prep Fiesta yesterday.

12 Compound verbs A COMPOUND VERB is two or more verbs that have the same subject and are joined by the conjunction such as and or or. The multiple verbs in compound predicates are always joined together by conjunctions. EXAMPLE: We LAUGHED, DANCED, AND ATE all day long!

13 More Examples DIRECTIONS: If the sentence has a compound subject, identify all the simple subjects in the sentence. If the sentence has a compound predicate, identify all the simple predicates in the sentence. Indoor cats and outdoor cats require lots of attention. Indoor cats and outdoor cats require lots of attention. The cat bites and shreds with its teeth rather than chewing, as humans do. The cat bites and shreds with its teeth rather than chewing, as humans do. The cat uses its senses and depends on them to survive in the environment. The cat uses its senses and depends on them to survive in the environment. Dogs and small children can harm cats. Dogs and small children can harm cats. The cat can hear a wide range of sounds and focus on them. The cat can hear a wide range of sounds and focus on them.

14 Work-Time Turn to the person sitting next to you. Use the next couple minutes to discuss the meaning of compound subjects and compound verbs. I need one pair of students to raise their hands and share what they came up with.

15 Lets put the new knowledge to work!! Write TWO descriptive sentences. One sentence has to include a compound subject and the second sentence has to include a compound verb.
