English Grammar Series: Sentences
This series is intended for primary and middle school levels.
Each course in this series focuses on one aspect of English grammar, including topics like the parts of speech, conjugating, types of phrases, parts and types of sentences, and sentence structure.
It is recommended, but not required, that you take the classes in this series in order.
Nouns & Pronouns
Adjectives & Adverbs
Conjunctions & Prepositions
Articles, Punctuation, & Interjections
Verbs & Conjugation
This 6 week class focuses on sentences as a whole. Understanding the types of sentences and how to form them helps to better understand the parts of speech and their function within a whole sentence. This course goes into depth on the various types of sentences, how sentences can be put together, and the various parts that can make up whole sentences.
No live classes—view lessons on YOUR schedule. In general, expect 1.5-2.5 hours to work through the lesson plan each week, and an additional 2-5 hours working on assignments (it really depends what assignment your child chooses to do and how they manage their time). For classes with two levels, the material is the same for both—the depth of the assignments differs. Younger students should usually be placed in Level 1. Older students, or younger students who want more of a challenge, should be placed in Level 2.
Each lesson consists of a fully narrated PowerPoint presentation with images and videos to enhance the topics. Students will have access to our learning management system, Canvas, for viewing their lesson, printing worksheets, taking quizzes, viewing/submitting assignments, participating in discussions, and viewing grades/feedback. Read more details about class format.
The subject and predicate of sentences, and the subject with the various types of objects that can be used in a sentence.
Various types of phrases, clauses, and modifiers that can be used in a sentence.
The different ways sentences can be put together: simple, compound, complex, and run-on sentences.
Active and passive voice.
The different types of whole sentences: declarative, interrogative, imperative, and exclamatory sentences.
Students will learn how to put all of this information from the class together as they learn how to diagram sentences!
Next Level Homeschool is a firm believer that not all learning should happen from behind a screen! That's why we give students the freedom to submit their assignments in the way THEY want to! We don't want regurgitation learning here. By allowing students to use their own talents, skills, and passions to complete assignments, they become even more engaged and retain the information. Why? Because now it's literally in their hands! We receive thousands of projects every year from our students: written reports, videos, models, posters, Scratch, Minecraft, Roblox, songs, poems, skits, drawings, sculptures, crafts—we've seen it ALL! And WE LOVE IT!!
