Today we practiced writing some sentences with different kinds of dependent clauses. If you didn’t finish (or you weren’t here), please complete this assignment over the weekend as a way of preparing for your quiz on Monday.

On a sheet of notebook paper, write:

  • 5 sentences with a noun dependent clause – underline the dependent clause, and after it, put in parentheses a noun that could replace the dependent clause and still allow the sentence to make sense.
  • 5 sentences with an adjective dependent clause – underline the dependent clause and draw an arrow to the noun or pronoun it modifies.
  • 5 sentences with an adverb dependent clause – underline the dependent clause and draw an arrow to the word or phrase it modifies.

Your sentences must all be about the same theme (ice cream, dinosaurs, etc.).
