writing with a pen 2

Sentences with Subjects

This assignment, like last week, involves writing a series of sentences. This time, however, we provide you with a list of nouns and pronouns. Your job is to write a sentence using each of these words as the simple subject of your sentence. See this week’s lesson for more information on simple subjects.

Focus on meeting the five criteria of a complete sentence. Try to create sentences that are varied and interesting, but the most important thing is that you write grammatically correct complete sentences. Creativity is a nice bonus.
