The sentence making kit1

The Sentence-Making Kit

On the inside of the card:

AAAWWUBBIS:

although, as, after

while, when

until

because, before

if, since

If a sentence begins

with any of these words,

it must have two parts.

Place a comma between

the two parts if one of

these words begins

the sentence.

These words, plus the comma, may join

two sentences. Writers sometimes begin

sentences with these words if they are

doing so for emphasis.

,and

,but

,so

Use as many

ACTION VERBS as possible.

Flip the switch into formal English:

a lot = a great many or a great deal

gonna= going to

wanna= want to

hafta= have to

get,got = become, became, receive

received, obtain, obtained

gotta: must

These words will help you

give detail in your sentences:

Try beginning some of your

sentences with these words:

Use words and groups of words that

answer the ADVERB QUESTIONS:

When? Where? Why? How?

To what extent? How often?

IN FOR

ON WITH

AT
