Use this COMPLEX SENTENCE SEQUENCING to model, rehearse or consolidate students understanding of the structure of complex sentences and the use of subordinating conjunctions.
These COMPLEX SENTENCE SEQUENCING can be used in a number of different ways;
- TEACHER MODEL: A3 strips used for modelling the sequencing and inter-changeable nature of dependent and independent clauses in complex sentences.
- SMALL GROUP WORK: A3 or A4 strips used in a collaborative team, with students sorting the strips into complex sentence sequences.
- INDEPENDENT CONSOLIDATION: A4 strips used as an individual ‘cut and paste’ activity to demonstrate student understanding. Students need to write the sentences alternative underneath.
