Writing Simple Sentences

student thinking of outside

A simple sentence tells one complete thought.

James dreams about summer.

       (The subject is James and the verb is dreams. The sentence tells one complete thought.)

If words do not tell a complete thought, they are a fragment.

About summer.

       (These words lack a subject and verb. They do not tell a complete thought.)

You can fix a fragment by completing the thought.
