 Create a four-flap foldable and label each flap with the type of sentence. 1. Simple 2. Compound 3. Complex 4. Compound-Complex  Inside left = write the definition of the sentence type  Inside right = write your OWN example of the sentence type

 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
