Here's a packet to help your class review sentence construction and parts of a sentence. The five-page packet is divided into nine exercises focusing on finding the subject, predicate, prepositions, prepositional phrases, and infinitives. Answers are not included, but you could correct the pages yourself and use the document camera to help your class correct them. Some brief explanations are offered, but this resource would best be used after topics have already been introduced.
