Compound words and sentences

  1. 1. Compound Words and Sentences By Ms. Tucker
  2. 2. Compound Words <ul><li>As you already know - compound words are two little words mashed together to create a new word, with a new meaning! </li></ul><ul><li>For example - straw+berry = strawberry </li></ul><ul><li>Look at the words on the next few slides, and try and point out the compound words. </li></ul>
  3. 6. Simple Sentences <ul><li>The basic structure of a sentence contains a subject and a verb. </li></ul><ul><li>Its purpose is to express a complete thought. </li></ul><ul><li>Extra: A sentence can also be called a independent clause. </li></ul><ul><li>In the following ‘simple sentences,’ subjects (or nouns) are in yellow , and verbs are in red . </li></ul>
  4. 7. Examples: <ul><li>Some students like to study in the mornings. </li></ul><ul><li>The children are playing quietly. </li></ul><ul><li>The class read peacefully. </li></ul>
  5. 8. Compound Sentences <ul><li>These are words that connect ‘simple sentences’ together to create compound sentences. The logic of making compound sentences is basically the same as making compound words. This time instead of having two words mashed together - we mash two sentences together with a connecting word. </li></ul>
  6. 9. Connecting Words The words we use to connect simple sentences together. <ul><li>And </li></ul><ul><li>But </li></ul><ul><li>So </li></ul><ul><li>Yet </li></ul><ul><li>Because </li></ul><ul><li>As </li></ul><ul><li>If </li></ul><ul><li>Before </li></ul><ul><li>Since </li></ul><ul><li>Like </li></ul>
  7. 10. Example: <ul><li>Maria went to the shop. </li></ul><ul><li>Ned went to the shop. </li></ul><ul><li>Now, add a connecting word and the sentence becomes like this: </li></ul><ul><li>Maria and Ned went to the shop. </li></ul>
  8. 11. Practice In the space between the words - add a connecting word. <ul><li>He went home_____had a bath. </li></ul><ul><li>Mary touched it to see____it was hot___cold. </li></ul><ul><li>Joanne____Chris arrived to take down the sign. </li></ul><ul><li>He was here_____three o’clock. </li></ul>
  9. 12. Answers: <ul><li>He went home and had a bath. </li></ul><ul><li>Mary touched it to see if it was hot or cold. </li></ul><ul><li>Joanne and Chris arrived to take down the sign. </li></ul><ul><li>He was here at three o’clock. </li></ul>
