2 Simple sentences Are about primarily just one thing Can have commas Can have multiple subjects and verbsEX: The dog is brown.EX: In the morning, you will eat bread.EX: Sue and Mary bought and sold some tickets.
3 Compound SentencesComprised of two independent clauses (have a subject and verb)Can be joined in three waysWith a comma and a conjunctionWith a semicolonWith a semicolon, conjunction AND a comma
4 For Example Susan bought some milk, and Joe bought some cookies. The dog wanted some meat; the cat ate her catfood.The sun shone brightly; however, the rain came in the next day.The boy took a picture, and developed it at home.
5 Complex SentencesMade up of an independent clause AND a dependent clause (remember, dependent clauses have a s/v, but they can’t stand alone)If the dependent clause starts the sentence, follow it with a comma.If the independent clause comes first, no comma.
6 For exampleWhen the Georgia Bulldogs win on Saturday, Ms. Smith will be very happy!Ms. Smith will be very happy when the Georgia Bulldogs win on Saturday.I love ice cream, because it is yummy.
