Sentences are the life blood of written thought and communication. Often the grammar and structure are just as important as the information we are sharing. Without proper form, the reader will have difficulty understanding the thoughts of the author. There are many different classifications for sentences. You have the most basic of sentences in the simple sentence which consists of a subject, a verb, and a completed thought. There are sentences that are made up of two independent clauses. These are called compound and contain more than a single predicate or subject. You also have complex sentences that consist of an independent clause and one or more dependent clauses. This series of worksheets will help students learn to spot these different types of sentences in live practice exercises.
