Compound Sentences

 


 

 


 

What is a compound sentence?

 

 

A compound sentence combines two sentences into one using a comma and a conjunction, such as and, or , but.

 

Examples Sentences:

 

  • I heard a screeching noise behind the tree. A cat sprinted past me.
    • I heard a screeching noise behind the tree, and a cat sprinted past me.

 

  • The scared cat jumped up onto my sister's shoulder. My sister screamed.
    • The scared cat jumped up onto my sister's shoulder, and my sister screamed.

 

  • My mom screamed too. My brother laughed.
    • My mom screamed too, but my brother laughed.

 

  • We could continue Trick or Treating. We could go home.
    • We could continue Trick or Treating, or we could go home.

 

Example Paragraph:

 

Now read the compound sentences in one paragraph:

 

I heard a screeching noise behind the tree, and a cat sprinted past me. The scared cat jumped up onto my sister's shoulder, and my sister screamed. My mom screamed too, but my brother laughed.  We could continue Trick or Treating, or we could go home. We decided to sing all the way home, and Dad heard us a block away!. Dad made hot cocoa, and we pigged out on candy and cocoa.  We call Halloween our "C and C" night. What do you do on Halloween?

Direction 1 (in compound sentences):

 

Create one compound sentence correctly on paper, and then you may begin work on the computer.  You need to study the examples above, and you need to write a good compound sentence on your own.  You need to show your sentence to your teacher, and then you will receive permission to use the computer.

 

 


 

Direction 2:

 

Try some sentences yourself by completing this activity.

 

 

 

1. Make a list of Halloween characters, actions, places, props, and mood/weather.

Note-- make a chart: Note: the words across rows do not need to match; just make lists.

 

Add to this page: scarythings

 

Characters Actions Places Props Mood/Weather
witch screeches dark sky broom stormy
ghost flies haunted house oak tree purple sky
goblin sneaks bushes candy full moon
princess prances sidewalk magic wand frosty
  surprises porch crown creepy
. . .
candy bag
foggy
. . . . .cold
. . . . .
. . . . .
. . . . .
. . . . .
. . . . .
. . . . .

 

 

 

2. Use the words from the chart to create Halloween paragraphs of compound sentences. Remember to place your comma before the conjunction, or you won't have a correctly written sentence.

 

Example:

 

 

A witch screeched across the dark sky on her broom, and the ghost flew through the windows in the haunted house. The princess screamed at the ghostly flights, but her little brother laughed. Then a goblin grabbed his bag of candy, and the princess squealed as the fog followed the goblin away. The princess and her brother scampered across the frosty lawn back towards their red brick house, and the wind forced them forward. They pushed open the front door to their house, and dad stood in the living room with a goblin mask in his hand. "Dad!" Todd exclaimed, "You fooled me again this year!"
