Description & Features

This 72-page book teaches students how to diagram sentences so they see the underlying structure of English grammar. Diagramming sentences gives many visual and logical learners an alternative way to learn grammar. Students who understand the finer points of English grammar will apply this knowledge to their writing. For many students, boring old grammar lessons become understandable and fun—even kids who are traditionally more "math minded" begin to enjoy English lessons.

The diagramming begins with simple subject-verb sentences, but continues step-by-step to complex sentences with dependent clauses. Each lesson provides plenty of practice diagramming. After completing all the lessons, there is a review where students diagram sentences using all the grammar rules they have learned.

The grammar lessons in Sentence Diagramming: Beginning are:

  • Simple Subject and Main Verb
  • Direct Object
  • Adjectives
  • Adverbs Modifying Verbs
  • Predicate Adjectives
  • Predicate Nouns
  • Prepositional Phrases (Adjectival)
  • Prepositional Phrases (Adverbial)
  • Compound Subjects
  • Compound Predicates
  • Compound Direct Objects
  • Compound Predicate Adjectives and Nouns

Product Reviews Write a review for this product

"This is a fantastic resource to use with students who need more reinforcement with dissecting sentences. There is a grey section at the beginning of each lesson, and before a new idea is introduced, which highlights instructions and examples, so the student knows exactly what is expected. It is simple, clear and concise with the wording, examples and how each lesson is to be mastered. The pages are even perforated so one could complete the exercise outside of the book. With an answer in the key it makes for easier self-correction or for teachers to depict mistakes. Each lesson builds upon the next lesson, so it is critical that they are completed in order. I highly recommend using this book with all students who are beginning their journey with sentence structure." - Pam Havens, The Old Schoolhouse
