"A sentence starts with a capital and ends with a stop sign."
Three punctuation marks have the power to STOP a sentence: a period, a question mark and an exclamation point.
PARTS OF A SENTENCE
Sentences have TWO main parts.
The first part is the subject. The subject names the person, place, thing or idea that the whole sentence is about.
The second part is the predicate. The predicate tells what the subject is or does.
SUBJECTS ARE ALWAYS NOUNS
Nouns can be categorized as people, places, things or ideas. There are two types of nouns: common and proper.
Common nouns are general; common nouns refer to a specific person, place, thing or idea and, as names, need to start with a capital letter.
