Sentence Master English Language Word Card Exercises

Buy your own set of Sentence Master Practice Word Cards and learn to write English sentences, clauses and phrases.

The Sentencemaster blog has free practice one-card exercises.

You can see how each of the eight English language parts of speech work together to create meaning.

You can see how the nouns work within a sentence, clause or phrase. You can see what task and function the nouns
perform as a part of the English language.

Using the word cards - you can see all eight English language parts of speech - how they work - what task and
function they perform - their relationships with the other parts of speech to create meaning.

You can use one-word-card exercises to practice each of the eight parts of speech - nouns, pronouns, adjectives,
verbs, adverbs, conjunctions, prepositions and the interjections.

When you understand how the individual parts of speech work - you can graduate up to the two-word-card exercises.

You can practice using adjectives with nouns and pronouns. You can practice using adverbs with verbs. You can practice
showing relationships with prepositions and join concepts with conjunctions.

After mastering all the possible two-word-card exercises you can move up to the three-word-card exercises

This requires your ability to get adjectives to work with nouns and verbs or verbs with adverbs to work with nouns.
These three-word-card exercises require agreement with tense, singular/plural active/passive and other
forms of agreement.

Use Practice Word Cards to teach How to Write English Phrases

Teaching "How to Write English Phrases" can be easy. I use the Sentence Master practice word cards to
make the teaching easier, simpler and more focused.

The word cards are small and simple - students are not afraid of them. If I am teaching three word phrases
it is easy to give the students an article, preposition and noun word card. Using only the three cards will
focus the students attention. This reduces the opportunity to be distracted into other topics.

It is easy to teach any needed vocabulary needed for context. there are only 13 words.

When you discuss the functions and task performed by each word in the different phrases combinations
- the students will remember the word - and the task performed in the different phrases.

The word cards become memory aids.

The students learn that many words perform different tasks - depending on the context. When demonstrated
in smaller easy to repeat variations the students learn the necessary language flexibility without
being intimidated.

You can teach every type of English language word phrase using the Sentence Master practice word cards.
You can create thousands of English phrases with your own set of practice word cards.

Use Practice Word Cards to teach
"Advanced Writing Compound Complex & Compound-Complex sentences"

I like to get my clause-teaching materials prepared in advance of the class. I try to use topics from
magazines or texts that are appropriate for the age and interest of the class. I like to cut out
entire clauses. These clauses can be from four words to 12 words. The clauses can be dependant
or independant clauses.

I also bring in the Sentence Master practice conjunction cards.

We discuss with the class all the different clauses. What they are - what they mean - what they do.

Then I bring in the Sentence Master practice conjunction cards.

We discuss what function the conjunction performs and the available context.

Then we try to join the set clauses into compound or complex or compound-complex sentences.

You will have to discover and print your own set of clauses for teaching - however - with the conjunction
cards - you can create thousands of examples of how to create coumpound or complex or
compound-complex sentences.
