Product Description
Sentence diagramming can be a useful visual tool to help students understand, identify, and apply the parts of a sentence. Most students find that the visual representation of how these parts of the sentence fit together makes the abstract features of English grammar more concrete. With practice, students can use diagramming to diagnose and fix their own grammatical mistakes and add variety to their writing.

If you've never tried sentence diagramming, these three ten-minute lessons are a great introduction to this instructional grammar tool. Plus, have your students practice the parts of speech with their new sentence diagramming skills. What a great way to get your students to see how the parts of speech function within a sentence. If you're trying to get students to master their parts of speech, the visualization really helps.

Instructional Objectives

In three ten-minute lessons, students will learn how a sentence diagram depicts the subject, predicate, direct object, modifiers (adjectives and adverbs), indirect objects, and prepositional phrases. In eight three-minute lessons, students will apply their knowledge of sentence diagramming to properly place the parts of speech on sentence diagrams.

Preparation and Materials

Students will need binder paper, pencils, and rulers. The teacher will use the display projector or board to model the procedures.


Sentence Diagram Practice: The teacher draws and explains each component of the sentence diagram and students copy it. Simple!

Parts of Speech Practice: The teacher copies the two-page worksheet for students. The teacher reads the directions out loud for the focus part of speech and students fill in the blanks on the provided diagram. The teacher displays the answers and students self-correct to learn from their own mistakes.
