    Sentence Structure Unit Overview


    Looking for a scaffolded sentence structure unit that engages students and breaks down challenging concepts into bite-sized pieces? With visual, brain-based approaches, this sentence structure bundle will engage students both online and in the classroom.

    Because understanding sentence types is at the heart of good student writing, I spend a lot of time and energy making quality materials that students will understand and enjoy.

    If you want your students to understand the four basic types of sentences: simple sentences, compound sentences, complex sentences, and compound-complex sentences, this unit is what you need. It takes a scaffolded approach to learning sentence types by starting with basic skills and working up to those that are more advanced.


    In this sentence structure bundle, you will have access to:
