Students often struggle to identify and types of sentences. Standards ask students to use simple, compound, complex, and compound-complex sentences. Also - many questions on standardized tests (such as the ACT) focus on punctuating different types of sentences.
I created this presentation and scaffolded activities 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.
✩ 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:
- 10 sentences where students must identify the subject and verb, and then identify the sentences as simple or compound.
- 10 sentences where students must find the subordinating conjunction, and then identify the sentences as complex or compound-complex.
- 15 sentences for students to identify as simple, compound, or complex.
- 20 sentences for students to identify as simple, compound, complex, or compound-complex.
- 15 sentences (I use this section as a quiz, but it will also work for practice). Students must identify an underlined portion as phrase, independent clause, or dependent clause. The remaining portion is between simple, compound, complex, or compound-complex sentences.
✩ Answer keys for the practice sentences.
