Phrases and clauses can look similar, and my students confuse them. I made these activities to clarify the differences in these units of words. If your students struggle to identify subjects and verbs, types of sentences, or punctuate phrases and clauses correctly, these grammar activities should help.
This bundle includes:
☆ A grammar power-point with over 30 slides. They cover types of phrases with examples, independent and dependent clauses with examples, and punctuation rules. It covers the core differences between phrases and clauses.
☆ A student note taking packet. This packet follows the power point and has ample room for notes and additional examples. I stress that my students should write down the relative pronouns and subordinating conjunctions.
☆ 50 practice sentences that are perfect for scaffolding. The grammar worksheets are:
- 10 sentences with underlined phrases for students to identify.
- 10 sentences with underlined clauses that students must identify as independent or dependent.
- 10 sentences for students to find phrases.
- 10 sentences for students to find dependent and independent clauses.
- 10 sentences for students to practice phrases and clauses together.
Answer key included for the practice sentences.
Please note that the power point does not differentiate between noun, adjective, and adverb clauses. It simply covers dependent and independent.
I left the Power Point editable, so if you would like to remove the transitions or certain slides, you will be able to personalize it.
This grammar bundle will help your students understand the differences between phrases and clauses.
