  2. 2. Benchmark Curriculum: Early Elementary Meaning and Communication This benchmark includes; developing fluency for multiple purposes, recognize that authors make choices to convey meaning and influence an audience, begin to plan and draft texts, and begin to edit text and discuss language convention.

  5. 5. YES! Climb a tree is not a sentence. Why? -It does not express a complete thought. We wonder who climbed a tree? Where did they climb a tree? Why did they climb a tree? -By adding more information we can make it a complete thought. -The cat climbed the tree when she heard the dog bark.
  6. 6. REMEMBER! A sentence needs to: -Start with a capital letter -Have an end mark -Make sense

  10. 10. <ul><li>A simple sentence contains one subject and predicate. </li></ul><ul><li>Examples - Some students like to study in the mornings. </li></ul><ul><li>- My car broke down this afternoon. </li></ul><ul><li>- The students were playing tag at recess. </li></ul><ul><li>These sentences contain one subject and one predicate . </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>A compound sentence includes two simple sentences joined by a linking word. This word can be for, and, nor, but, or, yet, so. Usually there is a comma to separate the two simple sentences. </li></ul><ul><li>Examples: </li></ul><ul><li>- I went shopping, and my mom came with me. </li></ul><ul><li>-It’s snowing outside, but it will melt soon. </li></ul>
