2 Complete Sentences A Project LA Activity Complete Sentences Fragments Run-On Sentences Compound Sentences

3 Complete Sentences A complete sentence has a subject and a predicate that work together to make a complete thought. Bobby smiled until he thought his face would crack.

4 Fragment Sentences A SENTENCE FRAGMENT fails to be a sentence in the sense that it cannot stand by itself.

5 Fragment Sentences may locate something in time and place, but lack a subject- verb relationship. Last Saturday after the ballgame at the ice cream shop.

6 Fragment Sentences may describe something, but have no subject-verb relationship. Shooting just before the buzzer rang and hoping to score the winning point.

7 Fragment Sentences may have most of the makings of a sentence but still be missing an important part of a verb string. Some of the girls going together to the mall.

8 Fragment Sentences may have a subject-verb relationship, but cannot stand by itself. Even though she was the prettiest girl and had a great talent presentation.

9 Run-On Sentences A RUN-ON SENTENCE (sometimes called a fused sentence) has at least two parts, either one of which can stand by itself, but the two parts have been connected together with one or two words instead of becoming two sentences.

10 Run-On Sentences Remember: The length of a sentence really has nothing to do with whether a sentence is a run-on or not; even a very short sentence could be a run-on. The books are heavy dont carry them. The books are heavy.Dont carry them.

11 Run-On Sentences When two clauses are connected by only a comma, they are a run- on sentence that is called a comma-splice. The books are heavy, dont carry them.

12 Run-On Sentences happen when an independent clause gives an order or directive based on what was said in the prior independent clause. The game is going to be very close you have to play your best.

13 Run-On Sentences happen when two clauses are connected by words such as however, moreover, nevertheless. Mother packed my lunch today however she forgot to put in my desert.

48 Combining Sentences Sentences have to be combined to avoid the boredom that would happen if all sentences were the same length.

50 Compound Sentences Words that combine are called conjunctions. The two most common conjunctions are and and but. (The others are or, for, yet, and so.) Susan likes to read.She likes to play piano. Susan likes to read and play the piano.
