This grammar sort allows students to practice identifying the differences between simple and compound sentences. Two sheets of twenty sentences and an answer key are included. Grammar sorts work perfect as group work, station work, or individual practice. You will have a PDF version as well as a link to a Google Drive version.

When students try to identify types of sentences, they often become overwhelmed. To take a step back, I break sentences into different types. This activity asks students to decide if the sentences are simple or compound. It allows students not to worry about subordinating conjunctions or relative pronouns.


* Two sets of 20 sentences that are either simple or compound. Forty sentences total!

* An answer key for all 40 sentences.

* An answer sheet for students. You won't need this sheet if you put the sentences in an interactive grammar notebook.

Have students separate simple and compound sentences, and then discuss with them the punctuation used, the differences between the two, and the possibilities for sentence structure in their writing. This grammar sort adds perfectly to scaffolded grammar practice.
