Fundamentals Writing and Literature Sentence Openers 1-3 Presentation

  1. 1. Sentence Openers<br />(With me, Mrs. Cannon)<br />
  2. 2. There are 6 ways to open a sentence. <br />They add variety to the way our sentences sound. It would be boring if all sentences sounded the same (like these three do). Today, we will learn 3 of them.<br />
  3. 3. Since variety is our friend <br />(especially in writing), <br />I have a friend to help you learn sentence openers. <br />Mrs. Cannon’s Roaming Gnome<br />
  4. 4. Sentence opener # 1: Subject opener<br />A subject opener opens with the subject of the sentence.<br />For example…<br />I love to feel the sand between my toes! <br />
  5. 5. Since “I” is the subject of the sentence <br />“I love the feeling of sand between my toes,” <br />it is a #1 subject opener. <br />I love to feel the sand between my toes! <br />
  6. 6. Sentence opener # 2: Preposition opener<br />A preposition opener begins with a preposition. For example…<br />On this cruise ship, the food is fantastic! <br />
  7. 7. Prepositions show the relationship between two nouns. In this sentence, “cruise ship” and “food” are connected with the word “on.”<br />On this cruise ship, the food is fantastic! <br />Want the full list of prepositions? See page 6 of the Student Resource Notebook. <br />
  8. 8. Sentence opener # 3: <br />“-ly” adverb opener<br />An “-ly” opener starts with an “-ly” word followed by a comma.<br />For example…<br />Hungrily, I munched on the conch creole. <br />
  9. 9. Since it begins with an “-ly” adverb, this is clearly a #3 sentence opener. <br />Hungrily, I munched on the conch creole. <br />
  10. 10. We will cover the other three sentence openers another day. <br />Have a question? Just let me know! <br />
