PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Hesitating to introduce your students to simple, compound and complex sentences? Or have you tried to refresh their memory but it just isn't working? Here is the easy yet amazing Sentence Type Foldtivity! It is a great student activity for an introductory or review lesson regarding simple, compound, and complex sentences.

This PDF file includes all the components needed to create this easy foldtivity, including printable pieces and step-by-step instructions with real photos! {8.5 x 11 colored paper, scissors, glue, and markers not included of course!}

The foldtivity includes the following information:
*Definitions for simple, compound, and complex sentences
*A list of coordinating and subordinating conjunctions
*An example sentence for each sentence type
*A place for students to create their own example sentence for each sentence type

I have done this activity with my 6th grade students. Afterward, the foldable serves as a great reference guide for independent practice when identifying simple, compound, and complex sentences. It is a great hands-on activity and visual resource for English Language Learners as well.

Nice foldable but kinda basic for upper grade students. What about the comma in the compound sentences?
On  March 4, 2014A Teachable Teacher answered:
I'm sorry you thought it was too basic for your students! Hopefully you still found it useful in your classroom. My district does not teach comma in the compound sentences, but it can easily be added to the foldable!

Thank you for your feedback!

Overall, great, but some improvements can be made.

It wasn't thorough enough for my seventh graders. On the compound part--there was no mention of semi-colons to connect sentences. Also , it said to connect compound sentences with just a FANBOYS--you need also a comma. In addition, a complex sentence is made also with relative pronouns beginning the dependent clause. So, I just added these things. However, I would have loved to have them there already.

Our grammar curriculum teaches the kids to put a comma with the conjunction in a compound sentence. I was wondering if you could include boxes for that rule as well. The whole activity is great!
