Product Description
Use this poster to show your students the attributes that make up simple, compound and complex sentences.

Simple Sentences
A simple sentence is also called an independent clause. It contains a subject and a verb and expresses a complete thought.
Scott plays soccer in the morning.

Compound Sentences
A compound sentence contains two independent clauses joined by a coordinating conjunction (and, but, for, nor, or, so, yet).
Scott was playing soccer, so Mary went to the beach.

Complex Sentences
A complex sentence combines an independent clause with one or more dependent clauses. A complex sentence always has a subordinating conjunction (after, although, because, since, when) or a relative pronoun (that, which, who).
I did not see Scott today, because he was playing soccer.
