Storyboard Text

  • Clauses are important because they always give us extra detail and can be a complete sentence and also can not be, unlike phrases, which are always incomplete and also give detail.
  • Why do we need phrases and clauses?
  • Without semicolons, we wouldn't have bonds between sentences. And without colons, all of our sentences would flow together with no seperation.
  • Why do we need semicolons and colons?
  • Dependent clauses rely on independent clauses because independent clauses can stand as a sentence on its own, dependent clasues cannot.
  • How are dependent clauses dependent on independent clauses.
  • A subordinating conjunction keeps good flow in an important sentence as well as specifies which part of the sentence is more important.
  • What do subordinating conjunctions do?
  • How is school hard, son?
  • Dad, why is school so hard?
  • He is clueless on how much harder life gets with age, poor boy.
  • Son, that isn't very nice. You're only in fifth grade, enjoy it while it lasts
  • The teachers always assign too much homework, and talk too much!
  • You always use semicolons for sentences with two independent clauses. A sentence with two independent clauses could be: He knew he should've locked the door; now he was being robbed.
  • And you use colons after a complete sentence for a group of words that explains the sentence. For example: He only had two teenage daughters: Sydney and April.
