*SENTENCE COMBINATION*

Learning to combine ideas into more complex sentences is an important writing skill. There are many ways to do this. Try to combine the following three sentences. Do not use a semi-colon.

Sentence 1: We are well into December.
Sentence 2: The first snowfall of the season was weeks ago.
Sentence 3: It won't be long until the Christmas vacation.

We are well into December, so it won’t be long until the Christmas vacation and the first snowfall of the season was weeks ago.

It won’t be long until the Christmas vacation, as the first snowfall of the season was weeks ago and we are now well into December.

Well done, Leah!

Good try, Angel, but your last clause doesn't really fit into the logic of the sentence.

Here is another possibility:

"We are well into December and the first snowfall was weeks ago, so it won't be long until the Christmas vacation."
