Complex sentences can be very challenging to teach- and frustrating to learn! I have used this activity with upper elementary to middle school students to make complex sentences fun!
This product contains two organizers for using the conjunction "since." One for the temporal meaning (e.g. I have been playing soccer since second grade.") and one for the causal meaning (e.g. Since I ate too many snacks after school, I'm not hungry for dinner.")
This activity is built as an expressive activity, scaffolding students' ability to construct their own complex sentences. However, it also builds comprehension, as students discuss each other's sentences and perfect their own. Use it as a worksheet, or laminate for repeated use.
