Compound & Complex Sentences: In this activity, students identify compound and complex sentences by using task cards. They also practice finding subordinate conjunctions and relative pronouns, as well as dependent and independent clauses. The set features grammar posters, 40 task cards, and a matching build-your-own storage case for fun and convenient organization of your cards!
• 40 task cards, which feature compound and complex sentence practice
• Instructions for using task cards
• Printable storage case template
• 4 grammar posters (compound sentences, complex sentences, subordinating conjunctions, compound vs. complex)
• Student recording sheets
• Answer key
• 23 pages total
My students love to use the task cards with a partner as part of a class competition. The posters are an excellent visual tool, which can be distributed to students or displayed on a wall or bulletin board. My students like to refer to this as the “grammar wall.”
Note: For maximum durability, we recommend printing the storage case template on heavy cardstock. Another good technique is to print it on regular paper and gluing it to a file folder prior to assembling. The case is large enough to hold 40 laminated cards with room to spare.
