Jan rode around the block. Jan jumped on her bike and rode around the block. The compound predicate is 'jumped on her bike and rode around the block.' The subject in both the sentences is Jan. Directions: Combine each pair of sentences into one sentence using a compound predicate. Write ten more example sentences using compound predicates.
