Storyboard Text

  • Explain why the English language needs phrases and clauses.
  • A dependent clause cannot stand alone. A dependent clause needs an independent clause to complete a sentence.
  • Explain why the English language needs semicolons and colons.
  • They look very similar but we need them both for the English language. Colons used to separate a complete sentence and words that clarify the sentence. Semicolons are used to form a bond between two statements.
  • Dependent clauses are 'dependent' on independent because they have to be attached to an independent clause; they are not complete sentences on their own.
  • Subordinating conjucntions essential parts of complex sentences with include at least two clauses, with one of the clauses being main (independent) and the other being subordinate (dependent).
  • Explain the role of subordinating conjunctions.
  • Wow, that's cool.
  • Well, did you ever have any horses?
  • My dad never really liked horses, so nope.
  • We had chickens, goats, and pigs; often cows.
  • My family owned a farm and they used to raise livestock.
  • You use a semicolon to combine two independent clauses. Ex: We had to many fumbles; we lost the game. 
  • You use a colon when our listing things. Ex: I went to the grocery store and bought a lot of fruit: peaches, strawberries, grapes, blueberries, and grapefruit.
