Do your students need more variety in their sentence structure? This resource takes students on a step-by-step process that shows them how they can use sentence variety to spice up their writing. The slides (pdf) are designed to help you introduce the concept and to illustrate different methods that students can use to add variety to their sentence structure, lengths and beginnings ( this sentence expanding resource is more in-depth - and a student favorite too)
The first few slides teach students about the difference between simple, compound, complex and compound-complex sentences. Next, students are introduced to different ways they can construct their sentences. Finally, students will practice varying their sentence openings and lengths.
In this file, you will find handouts that accompany the slide show, ones that students will use to practice the techniques you will present to them. Slides also include “answer keys”, which are only guides as there are always multiple ways to put together the sentences and paragraphs. The last three pages of this file are handouts on FANBOYS, conjunctive adverbs and subordinate conjunctions, in case you want to give students more explanation on ways to combine sentences.
These lessons could be used all at once, or divided up as class openers.
