Do your students struggle with determining the simple subject and verb in a complex sentence? You know they can identify a noun and a verb in isolation but that's as far as it goes. In order to master determining subjects and verbs, a student must first be able to identify and get rid of prepositional phrases in a sentence. Try this lesson with your students. You'll be amazed at how effortlessly they learn, and how effortless your teaching seems to be when following this step-by-step, easy to follow flipchart lesson. Use it for note-taking and in class practice. You can also use with dry-erase boards or as a formative assessment. You'll find lots of practice, and I've also included a printable end-of-lesson assessment with an answer key. Thanks so much for visiting Mrs. Heller's No-Frills Flipcharts!
