The Sentence Family is a unique way of introducing the four kinds of sentences and the parts of speech to children. In this curriculum, students reproduce crayon drawings of characters - four adults and nine children - who represent either kinds of sentences or parts of speech. All the characters are part of a story line which reveals the functions and relationships of the parts of speech.
The result is a series of active, engaging lessons which teach in a way that children can really learn. We have used this curriculum in our schools for many years with great success.
