_____ Although Nemo is very cute and the Little Mermaid seems to be having a good time, you need to leave the ocean to them and make a good life for yourself as a landlubber.

Why You Should Appreciate A Good Teacher

 _____ But if the teacher makes it interesting, using songs and giving the students a wide open selection of books to pick from that they like, grammar and reading, along with everything else, can become your pals.

 _____ Have you ever had a teacher that yelled at you all day, gave loads of homework, and never did anything but read the chapter and answer the questions?

 _____ Everyone knows that grammar is boring and some people hate to read because a teacher made them read a lot of stuff they hated.

 ____ So the next time you start to whine and get mad when the teacher asks for a little silence while she is trying to help you be smarter, think about whether it is really that bad.

 _____ School should be a fun place to go at every level and a good teacher uses contests, games, and interactive assignments to try and keep the students motivated.

How to Use Clauses Correctly

 ______ Words that start a dependent clause like because, when, and before are subordinate conjunctions.

____ Have you ever tried to write a sentence and it just doesn't sound or look right?

 _____ The independent clause is a complete thought that can make it's own sentence.

  _____ If the dependent clause comes first, you need a comma before the independent clause.

 _____ So you can see that if you just remember three simple things, and how to spell, a sentence can express exactly what you are trying to say!

 _____ But when the independent clause is first, no comma is needed.

 _____ These words tell us that the thought coming is just part of an idea and will be added to an independent clause.

 _____ Like this sentence, a dependent clause is an incomplete thought like a little baby that needs a babysitter to help it.

 _____ Maybe that's because you don't know the difference between an independent clause, a dependent clause, and a subordinate conjunction.
