Nine lessons in a grammar and usage unit provide endless opportunities for drill and practice. Topics include the four types of sentences, subject and predicates, nouns, verbs, adjectives, pronouns, adverbs and prepositions, conjunctions and interjections, as well as capitalization and punctuation. The scripted unit includes a culminating activity, handouts, worksheets, a bibliography, and an assessment.
Give your class foundational skills by teaching them how to identify the subject and the predicate of a sentence. Walk them through the information on the top of page one, and then let them complete the practice opportunity independently. Twenty sentences are provided, and learners identify both the subject and predicate of each.
In this nouns and verbs worksheet, students underline the complete subject once and the complete predicate twice in 7 sentences. Students identify the underlined words in 7 sentences as complete subject, complete predicate, simple subject or simple predicate. Students choose groups of words to make 5 fragments complete sentences.
Strengthen your pupils' writing with this learning exercise, which provides a reference guide to using strong verbs instead of forms of is and have. Learners then rewrite twelve sentences to make them stronger. This is a great activity to work on word choice or in the middle of a writing unit.
Use this review sheet as a test or homework assignment during your grammar unit. Focusing on parts of speech (particularly direct and indirect objects, pronouns, predicate nominatives, and predicate adjectives), the first part includes fill-in-the-blank and matching questions. The second part prompts eighth graders to label fifteen sentences, write sentences to meet certain grammatical requirements, and diagram three additional sentences.
Demonstrate different ways to combine sentences with this worksheet. In order to learn how compound sentences work, learners review, identify, and write compound sentences as well as sentences with compound subjects and compound predicates. This worksheet includes 30 questions of different types with which you can assess your class.
