This product is for students who have difficulty comprehending complex sentences. The cards target words in complex sentences that often throw off the meaning for our students with language disabilities or 2nd language learners. I use them mainly with my 4th and 5th graders although older students may benefit from them also.

Words are presented within the context of a short paragraph, two to four sentences in length. A question is then asked targeting a word. Words specifically targeted are neither/nor, either/or, instead, usually, unless, if/then, except, both, after, before, while, when, any, until, during, although. There are also prepositions that have to do with the position of individuals or things such as 1st, last, between, and middle. There are picture cues for support.

The down load consists of 12 sheets of cards for a total of 36 cards with a front and back. A question card is located beside an answer card. When cut, the answer card can be folded behind and glued to the question card which makes a sturdier card. You may also want to separate them for some activities. They make good draw cards for student games. The cards are best printed on cardstock. They are 2 ¾ inch by 3 ¼ inch.

These cards can be used with EASEL. There are published pages available that have the answer blocked with a text box and students can use the tools to answer using the EASEL Tools.
