    If you put two simple sentences together correctly, you have a compound sentence.


    I was hungry. My mom made me a sandwich. ~~> I was hungry, so my mom made me a sandwich.

    Jack ran up the hill. Jill came tumbling after him. ~~> Jack ran up the hill, and Jill came tumbling after him.

    The ways to connect simple sentences to make compounds are these:

    , and
    , but
    , or
    , nor
    , for
    , so
    , yet
