here are the two sentences
Here are the two sentences.
  • Cubs can climb trees.
  • Big bears are too heavy.
  • Which conjunction should we use?
  • Yes, we should use “but” because “but” shows contrast (how things are different)
  • Cubs can climb trees, but big bears are too heavy.
  • We should capitalize the first word in the compound sentence.
let s join two more sentences
Let’s join two more sentences.
  • A mother bear must catch fish.

Can you identify compound sentences?
  • Let’s find out?
  • Kevin Culpepper liked the zebra, and his dad took pictures of it.
  • Do you see a comma followed by a conjunction?
  • Yes, we see a comma and the conjunction “and”.
  • Do you see a complete sentence in front of the comma?
  • Yes, you do.
  • Do you see a complete sentence behind the conjunction?
  • Yes, you do.
  • Since we see two complete sentences joined with a comma and a conjunction, then the sentence is compound.

Let’s try another one!!
  • Zebras have black and white stripes.
  • Do you see a comma followed by a conjunction?
  • No, you don’t.
  • What is the conjunction?
  • And
  • Does the conjunction “and” join two sentences?
  • It does not.
  • Therefore, the sentence is not compound.
  • Remember: You must have two sentences joined with a comma and a conjunction.
