Today we used this cute dragon photo to inspire our writing. At first, I pretended I had a new pet.

In writing, we are learning more about sentences. Sentences are a group of words that express an idea. They have a subject and a verb.
A simple sentence has one idea.
The little dragon wriggled on my fingers.
A compound sentence has two ideas joined by a conjunction.
The dragon is learning to breathe fire and it has lit a candle.
A complex sentence has two or more parts. One part has the main idea and makes sense by itself. The other parts contain information which builds on the main idea. The extra part does not make sense by itself.
The dragon's nostrils billowed smoke as if it was real.
Watch our Explain Everything which we recorded as we created our sentences.
