 SENTENCE JINGLE


A sentence, sentence, sentence
Is complete, complete, complete
When five simple rules it
Meets, meets, meets.
It has a subject, subject, subject
and a verb, verb, verb;
It makes sense, sense, sense
With every word, word, word.
Add a capital letter, letter
And an end mark, mark;
Now we're finished and
Aren't we smart?
Now our sentence has all its parts.
Remember,
Subject (clap, clap)
Verb (clap, clap)
Complete sense (3 claps)
Capital letter and an end mark, too
That's what a sentence is all about,
Yoo-hoo!
