I have had requests for more “Comprehension of Complex Sentences” cards. This set will add an additional 36 cards to your previous set. I used these cards with my upper elementary through middle school students. The cards target words that are often confusing for our students who are language learners.
Words are presented within the context of a short paragraph, three to five sentences in length. A question is asked to target words used in complex sentences. Words specifically targeted include; neither/nor, either/or, instead, usually, unless, if/then, except, both, after, before, while, when, any, until, during, although, early, later, first, last, between, and middle.
The download consists of 12 sheets of cards for a total of 36 double sided card sets. The cards are best when printed on cardstock. They are 2 ¾ inch by 3 ¼ inch in size. Cut the horizontal line and fold on the vertical line. Glue or laminate the cards back to back. This makes a sturdier card and provides the answer when the card is flipped over. You can also separate the prompt from the answer card for some activities. They make good draw cards for student games.
