Clip to ScrapBook #2

Simple, compound and complex sentences
Subject/verb agreement
Pronoun work
Punctuating dialogue (and we start a new paragraph each time we switch speakers)

The prologue to Tuck Everlasting is a gorgeous description with lots of pretty sentences to use as examples. Really, any good piece of writing will have great examples. I would look at picture books; Eve Bunting comes to mind. So does Patricia MacLachlan. Owl Moon, by Jane Yolen, would be great.
