Finding Prepositional Phrases is Step One in the Simple Steps to Sentence Sense series. In my book, Simple Steps to Sentence Sense, I present eight simple steps, which if followed in order, make it easy to analyze an English sentence.
I'm Charlene Tess, and grammar is my specialty. I have always loved taking sentences apart and putting them back together, and I successfully taught my students using the simple steps method for over three decades.
Once students have learned to find and eliminate the prepositional phrases in a sentence, everything about sentence analysis is easier. In this video I walk your students through the process.
This video is short and easy to understand, and best of all FREE! You can use the video with students who enroll late in the year, with students who need tutoring, or you can play the video for your class, sit back, and let me explain Step One.
If you would like to show your students a video to help them get the most benefit from using SAM (Sentence Analysis Map), which takes them through all 8 of the Simple Steps to analyze sentences, you will find it here.
Step One of Simple Steps to Sentence Sense is available in my store as an individual unit. However, if you want the entire course, which takes students through the simple steps and includes notes, document projection masters, group and individual exercises, tests, and writing connection pages you will find the three eBooks here.
