Practice recognizing sentence structure with this interactive grammar sort & grammar game. You choose if you would like this as a PDF (for printing) or a digital download.

Students should be able to differentiate between simple, compound, complex, and compound-complex sentences before they can move onto properly punctuating sentence structure and reaching higher language standards.

Included in this interactive grammar sort:

→ 20 groups of words for students to sort. Each type of sentence has five examples. Students will need to cut and place each piece in the correct category.
→ An answer sheet for students to adhere the answers.
→ Four interactive notebook pieces: simple, compound, complex, and compound-complex on blocks. These are folding pieces. If you do NOT use interactive notebooks, simply discard these pieces.

→ You will receive a copy of a Google Slides presentation. (Pictured in the thumbnails.) Students will drag and drop the sentence pieces into the correct categories. Share via email or Google Classroom.

This sentence structure activity is the perfect addition to any sentence structure unit. Use it as part of a station or center or as a grammar game.
