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.

 

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

 

 

 

 

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

 

 

Read these examples:

A witch screeched across the dark sky on her broom. The ghost flew through the windows in the haunted house.

 

A witch screeched across the dark sky on her broom, and the ghost flew through the windows in the haunted house.

 

Now write your own sentences, and turn them into compound sentences:

1 jamon was in a pink costume. he ran  to the other house.

jamon was in a pink costume, and he ran  to the other house.

2 halloween night i was running trip. All my candy scater on the road anice  person help me pick it up.

2  on Halloween night i was running and tripped so all my candy scattered on the road, and  a nice  person helped me pick it up.

 

 


 

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!"
