Sentence Building

How does a writer start to build a sentence? The easiest way is to begin with the subject and the predicate. They are the fundamental building blocks of a sentence, just as drywall and studs are for a house. From there a writer may add words, phrases, and clauses to enhance the meaning. Our sentence building worksheets below are intended to help your student write clear and correct sentences. They are free for home or class use.
