The Compound and Complex Sentences Worksheet can be used for instruction in all levels of grade school, pre-school, and kindergarten. These worksheets are designed to provide parents with the facts and tools necessary to help their children develop grammar skills and understand what are correct and improper use of grammar. In this regard, parents will want to examine the contents of the worksheet, and then consider the benefits and advantages of using the worksheet. These worksheets are particularly helpful for early learners.
There are a number of sentence fragments that need to be recognized and eliminated from the early learning process. For instance, an initial word should not be included within a compound or complex sentence, and punctuation should be used carefully when entering a compound or complex sentence. It is also very important that a child has a firm grasp of compound and complex sentences when they start to learn to speak English.
Compound and complex sentences are listed with the associated verb in parenthesis. The plural form of each verb is also listed in parenthesis, as is the word order. Many worksheets provide sample sentences that are used in other parts of the world, allowing a parent to determine whether the placement of a verb in a compound or complex sentence is appropriate in their native language.
An example of the compound and complex sentence is provided in a sentence fragment:
The researcher was deeply interested in the phonic interest of the group members. He evaluated their phonic interest in the social situation by asking each of them questions. He concluded that the answers to his questions were quite interesting, particularly for those who were very busy.
Compound and complex sentences are lists of words grouped together that have been formed into a single unit of speech. This is usually a proper noun or a pronoun (subject) and an object (verb). Subject pronouns such as I, we, he, she, it, we, and we are included in the list of compound and complex sentences.
Compound and complex sentences are also provided as cross-references to complete sentences. For instance, the meaning of the first and second lines of the above sentence can be found under “one”two.” Cross-references are typically written as asterisks (*) rather than as quotation marks. This allows parents to track the progression of compound and complex sentences as they progress through the different levels of vocabulary.
Compound and complex sentences can be introduced in several ways. In the Early Learning worksheet, parents may elect to use one of the five working on compound and complex sentences options. This option will allow the child to see the grammar and sentence structure of compound and complex sentences, and then they can decide whether they want to use this technique in their own speech.
