What educators are saying

Great activities for reviewing sentence structure. My students appreciated the hands-on practice rather than another boring worksheet.
This was a great resource to use to reinforce these standards. I used it with my seventh graders, but took pieces of the bundle to revisit the concept with my 8th graders.

    Sentence structure is an important part of connecting grammar to writing. Students must properly punctuate types of sentences as well as use simple, compound, complex, and compound-complex sentences with purpose. This sentence structure bundle provides a variety of tools and materials for every teacher.

    Purposes for making this sentence structure bundle:

    √ Students often struggle to identify types of sentences or basic sentence structures, but standards ask students to use simple, compound, complex, and compound-complex sentences.

    √ Many questions on standardized tests focus on punctuating different types of sentences.

    √ Finally, students need to apply the basic principles of types of sentences to their writing.

    These sentence structure activities bundle has additional downloads as free bonus material! The individual pieces in my store are linked below.


    Simple Sentences Stations & Powerpoint Subjects & Predicates

    Provide a firm foundation for future sentence structure lessons by studying subjects and predicates. Included is a presentation, 12 stations with five sentences each—60 practice sentences.


    Simple & Compound Sentences Grammar Sort - Sentence Structure Activity

    Introduce compound sentences with a presentation and flipping book for students to track definitions, notes, and examples.

    Then, practice identification of simple and compound sentences with a 40-sentence grammar sort. Use as much or as little as needed!


    Sentence Structure Worksheets

    Sentence Structure Task Cards

    Continue with the presentation and implement both the sentence structure worksheets and sentence structure task cards.


    Sentence Structure Manipulatives Build Sentences with Grammar Pieces

    Once you move to compound-complex sentences, pull out the sentence structure manipulatives. Using hands-on grammar manipulatives allows you to practice ALL sentence structures and punctuation rules with students.


    I have included (as bonus material), a test for sentence structure. Two culminating activities are also in this bundle:

    This is a fabulous resource to use before any writing unit! My students were better prepared to write complete sentences and paragraphs! Thank you!
