Classifying Sentences (Simple, Compound, Complex, and Compound/Complex) is Step Eight in the Simple Steps to Sentence Sense series by Charlene Tess. In my book, Simple Steps to Sentence Sense, I present eight simple steps, which if followed in order, make it easy to analyze an English sentence.

Grammar is my specialty. I have always loved taking sentences apart and putting them back together, and I successfully taught my students using the simple steps method for over three deåcades.

After many requests, I have decided to offer each of the eight steps as individual units. This 14 page unit on Classifying Sentences contains: the SAM sheet, lesson notes, 20 group practice sentences, 20 individual practice sentences, writing connection pages, a test, and the answers. This unit is Common Core Aligned.

As a bonus, this unit includes a link to an instructional video. The video is short and easy to understand, and best of all FREE! You can use the video with students who enroll late in the year, with students who need tutoring, or you can play the video for your class, sit back, and let me explain the lesson notes.

First, make copies of the SAM sheet and the lesson notes and give each student a copy. Then, they can follow along as the video explains the lesson notes.

Please be aware that this unit comes directly from the book. If you already own or plan to purchase the Simple Steps to Sentence Sense for High School book, this product will be a duplicate. It is important that you follow the 8 simple steps you will find in the Simple Steps to Sentence Sense for High School book in order to fully understand how to analyze English sentences. Skipping around can be confusing and the tests in the book are cumulative. For example, Step One, Finding Prepositional Phrases, is tested in all 7 of the steps that follow.

I hope you find this unit helpful. Be sure to visit my blog www.simplestepstosentencesense.blogspot.com for tips and hints on grammar and usage.
