Sentence Structure: Sentence structure is the way a sentence is put together using different parts of speech. It is important because it helps give the sentence meaning and clarity. Subject-Verb Agreement: The subject and verb of a sentence must agree in number. This means that if the subject is singular, the verb should be singular, and if the subject is plural, the verb should be plural. Sentence Variety: Sentence variety is when you mix up the structure of sentences when you are writing. It makes your writing more interesting and it helps you to avoid repeating the same sentence structure over and over again.
