A simple sentence is one independent clause. It expresses a complete thought. It has one subject and one verb.
Examples: Carol’s sweater is red. You and Alex need to be quiet. Ms. Goldstein did a cartwheel.
A compound sentence is a sentence with 2 or more independent clauses joined by a comma and a coordinating conjunction. It will have 2 simple subjects and 2 simple predicates.
Examples: Ren planned to go to the hockey game, but he couldn’t get tickets. Andrew loves monkeys, but he also likes lemurs.
Coordinating Conjunctions are used to join together 2 independent clauses. Examples: F or A nd N or B ut O r Y et S o
A complex sentence is one independent clause plus one dependent clause. Each clause has its own subject and verb, but the dependent clause can’t stand alone. The two clauses are joined by a subordinating conjunction.
Examples: When Trey was little, he did very weird things. Alex stands at the bottom of the cliff while the climber moves up the rock.
AAAWWUBBIS! As Although After When While Until Because Before If Since
A compound-complex sentence has at least 2 independent clauses and one or more dependent clauses. WOWSERS! That’s a lot of stuff!
Example: Lauren forgot her friend’s birthday, so she sent her a card when she finally remembered.
Check your foldable: 1 independent clause = simple sentence 2 independent clauses = compound sentence 1 or more dependent clause + 1 indep. clause = complex sentence 2 or more indep. clauses + 1 or more dep. clause = compound complex sentence
