"Questions Start with These"  video 
  • For a group of words to be defined as a sentence it requires three things:

    • It contains a predicate and a subject. The predicate, or verb, tells what the subject, or noun, is doing.

    • The words make sense and express a complete thought:

    • It begins with a capital letter and ends with a period, exclamation point, or question mark.

  • A simple sentence contains one independent clause. An independent clause is a group of words that can stand alone as a complete thought.

    • Ex: English class is fun.

  • A compound sentence has more than one independent clauses joined together with appropriate punctuation and/or conjunctions.

    • Ex: English class is fun, but I also enjoy math.

  • A question asks the reader something. It begins with a question word. A question starts with a capital letter and ends with a question mark.

    • Ex: Which class is your favorite?

Due to recursive nature of the standards, it is essential that teachers are aware of how all objectives within and between strands work together for optimal instruction.
