3 Types of Sentences

Our 3 Types of Sentences lesson plan teaches students how to write better sentences using compound and complex sentences. Students also learn how to vary their sentence types within paragraphs.

Our 3 Types of Sentences lesson plan helps students write better sentences, using compound and complex sentences when necessary, and teaches students to vary sentence structure when writing essays, stories, or other text. Students will practice identifying different types of sentences with an interactive game, played with a partner, in which they construct sentences to win points. They will also practice identifying sentence types on their own, practice their creative writing by constructing short stories using only one type of sentence at a time, practice inserting commas when needed, and identify conjunctions in a pre-written story.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define, use, and contrast simple, compound, and complex sentences.
