Students often struggle to identify and types of sentences. 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.
I created this presentation, pretest, scaffolded activities, and post test to help my students for these reasons.
This bundle includes:
✩ A grammar power-point with 24 slides. They cover the definitions of the types of sentences and provide examples. Students are given hints to use when deciding types of sentences, and then practice sentences.
✩ A pretest and post test.
✩ A flipping book and flash cards for choice in studying.
✩ Students note taking sheets: Sheets for students to take notes as the Power Point plays.
✩ Scaffolded practice activities that build with difficulty in studying the types of sentences:
- Grammar sorts
- Station work
- Task cards
- Additional presentation for scaffolding
✩ Four worksheets for students to analyze types of sentences. These worksheets are intended for in-depth discussion to reach the standards concerning application of sentence structure in writing. Students will discover ways that types of sentences are used, analyze a sentence from a story, and analyze a sentence from their own writing. This portion is NOT connected to the rest of the activities. It works perfectly as an extension activity.
✩ Answer keys for the practice sentences.
