Language Skills
Learning Activity 3

Three handouts.

3-1: Four Kinds of Sentences

Learners make a poster that describes the four kinds of sentences. They write a sentence for each kind of sentence. Then they write short paragraphs about topics using the different kinds of sentences.

3-2: Simple Sentences

Read the first part of the handout with learners. Discuss what simple sentences are. Learners decide whether the words on the chart express a complete idea (simple sentence), or an incomplete idea (not a sentence).

3-3: Compound Sentences

Learners use FANBOYS (for, and, nor, but, or, yet, so) to join two simple sentences from the story to make a compound sentence.
