Sentence Master Games provide a fun practical hands-on learning experience that will help students write English sentences, practice their English grammar, vocabulary, comprehension and improve their English writing
Before you write an English sentence you have to get organized. The first stage of organization is choosing the single or complete thought that you are stating, describing, explaining or asking. The thought should include 1. a subject, and 2. an action or state of being.
The following are examples of starting with a basic thought and experimenting by adding the different English parts of speech, phrases and clauses.
Now we have to decide which of six basic English sentence construction formats best suits your sentence.
What type of sentence best matches your thought: declarative, imperative, interrogative or exclamatory.
To describe any actions or states of being the writer must use a verb or verbs to show who or what initiated, experienced or received the action or state of being.
The first style decision is writing with a voice. Writers have to choose to write an active or passive English Sentence.
Nouns may act as any of the following: subjects of the verb, direct or indirect objects of the verb.
For most writing purposes noun phrases can be treated as single grammatical units performing the work of a noun in the sentence.
