This is an interactive PowerPoint that can be projected and used with the students helping to complete the examples in the PowerPoint. There are two levels of notes depending on how much copying your student is able to do. Both levels of notes still have the student completing the examples with the class.
This lesson teaches independent and subordinate (or dependent) clauses in order to help students better understand the different types of sentences. Also introduced are a variety of subordinating conjunctions that begin subordinating clauses.
The first activity students review differentiating between the types of clauses and phrases. They then are required to create sentences with 2 or more clauses or phrases.
There are two sections to this worksheet. In the first part students are asked to sort the phrases and clauses into the appropriate column in a chart.
Then in the second section they are required to create simple, compound. or complex sentences using a variety of clauses and phrases from the first section.
In the second activity students can practice independent and dependent clauses. It asks the student to find types of clauses in given sentences.
In the directions it gives them an acronym, AAAWWWUUBBIS, to help remember commonly used subordinating conjunctions.
If you would like to use a YouTube link to help them remember this (AAAWWWUUBBIS) to the tune of "Happy Birthday" here it is!
Finally, it asks them to demonstrate that they can write sentences using both independent and dependent clauses.
