PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This activity is to be completed after a mini-lesson on “the clause”. Students will be required to have prior knowledge of subjects, verbs, subordinating conjunctions, and (dependent/subordinate) clauses. This lesson is usually used before we go over the “complex sentence”. I like to show them they can write using complex sentences before we go over the lesson! It would also be beneficial to go over the comma rules relating to dependent clauses as well!
Ask students to write a short Fairy Tale as a journal prompt or “free write”. If preferred, students may find it easier to type their journal.


This lesson is aligned with the Common Core State Standards:
Conventions of Standard English:
CCSS.ELA.Literacy.L.7.1.A
• Explain the function of phrases and clauses in general and their function in specific sentences.
CCSS.ELA.Literacy.L.7.1.B
• Choose among simple, compound, complex, and compound-complex sentence to signal differing relationships among ideas.
