7 Essential Questions (Copy In Notebook):
1. What are the different types of sentence structures? 2. What words can we use to combine two sentences? 3. How are independent clauses used in a sentence?

8 Simple Sentence (Notes)
A simple sentence, also called an independent clause, contains a subject and a verb, and it expresses a complete thought, the predicate. In the following simple sentences, subjects are in yellow, verbs are in green, and predicates are in blue.   A. Some students like to study in the mornings. B. Juan and Arturo play football every afternoon. C. Alicia goes to the library and studies every day.

9 4 Simple Sentence Activities
1. Title: Predicate (Check your answers.-Honor Code) 2. Title: Quia Predicate Game (Show teacher when you have finished.) 3. Title: (Show me your score after you have finished.) 4. Title: Predicate Review (Write answers in your notebook.)

10 Compound Sentences (Notes)
A compound sentence contains two independent clauses joined by a coordinator. The coordinators are as follows: for, and, nor, but, or, yet, so. (Helpful hint: The first letter of each of the coordinators spells FANBOYS.) Except for very short sentences, coordinators are always preceded by a comma. In the following compound sentences, subjects are in yellow, verbs are in green, and the coordinators and the commas that precede them are in red.  A.  I tried to speak Spanish, and my friend tried to speak English.  B.  Alejandro played football, so Maria went shopping.  C.  Alejandro played football, for Maria went shopping.

12 Complex Sentences (Notes)
A complex sentence has an independent clause joined by one or more dependent clauses. A complex sentence always has a subordinator such as because, since, after, although, or when or a relative pronoun such as that, who, or which. In the following complex sentences, subjects are in yellow, verbs are in green, and the subordinators and their commas (when required) are in red.   A. When he handed in his homework, he forgot to give the teacher the last page.  B. The teacher returned the homework after she noticed the error.  C.
