This is a differentiated, double set of task cards for helping students understand three types of sentences: simple, compound, and complex. The first 32 cards are multiple-choice and focus on identifying types of sentences. The second set (also 32 cards) requires students to work with the three types of sentences; adding or taking away phrases to change the sentence type, or in some cases, combining sentences or separating them. Students will need to be familiar with independent and dependent clauses, and conjunctions before working with these cards.

Teacher Tip

Here’s what teachers are saying:

✏️ “Highly interactive way to assess students in their understanding of Sentence Types. I passed one card out to each student and had them pass them through the class and write their answers down. They had fun and it was an engaging way for them to practice the skill and for me to assess what needed to be retaught.” -Melissa M.

✏️ “I love these. All of your task cards are such quality work. Thank you. For my middle schoolers, I am going to use Set 1 as an early finisher activity and set 2 for writing practice morning work. Thank you for all of the time and effort you put into all of your work. My kids understand the information better with these activities.” -Jamie M.

✏️ Simple, straightforward, and flexible resource that I utilized for a variety of review games. Thanks for the great product!” -Carolyn D.

  1. Lisa S.

    This is a great resource for teaching sentence structure. My students enjoyed working with the task cards, and I will use it again next year. Thank you!

  2. Simply Schinella

    This was a good review for my kids on simple, compound, and complex. It was a little long so I broke it up into sections for my kids to do at center time.

  3. Katelyn A.

    This was a perfect digital activity for my students to complete to practice sentence structure. I actually ended up combining the two types of activities and that made for great practice.

  4. Nichole C.

    I love buying these resources. Very helpful and well organized. Fit well into our afternoon goals work.

  5. EMMA C.

    This resource was great for my 4th-grade students. We were able to use it in both whole group and independent practice. Thank you!

  6. Arnett’s Achievers

    Used these task cards for a game/escape room with my students! These are great for extra practice with sentence structure!

  7. Jami M.

    I used this in-class, but I’ve also continued its use on a virtual day; it’s a terrific exercise is sentence building. Thank you.

  8. Hello Tennessee Teacher

    I hung these task cards up throughout the hallways at my school and had my ESL students to work in groups to complete them! They loved the challenge and being able to get up and out of the classroom! They were actively engaged in discussion about the answers!

  9. Susan A.

    I would like more of these…very helpful material for my needs (individuals with hearing loss), especially helpful when they are below grade level in their writing, which is a frequent challenge. I have used it, modified use, and would buy more if available.

  10. Amber L.

    I love task cards and these are amazing! Thanks so much!
