Sentence Structure PowerPoint presentation to help your students understand sentence structure and the importance of varying sentences in writing. Notes and explanations and example sentences of these sentence structures: simple, simple with compound parts, compound joined by comma and conjunction, compound joined by a semicolon, complex with adverb clauses, complex with adjective clauses, and compound-complex sentence structures that are important to know and recognize. Develop a deeper understanding of English mechanics and grammar. Review activity at the end where students have to identify the sentence structure of five different sentences.
FLIP BOOK ACTIVITY - My students made a flip book by taking 4 sheets of white paper staggered so that about one inch of paper from each sheet overlapped, and then folded in half and stapled to make a total of eight flaps. Students then used the first flap as a title, and listed each of the seven different sentence structures on the other flaps and put their notes and examples underneath. It was a useful study guide for them.
