Language Arts ” Task Cards: Simple, Compound and Complex Sentences”

By Christina L

Grades 3-6





These task cards are larger than normal (6 questions each) so students can work on just one card. More advanced students may complete more than one card. A “user friendly” method of displaying them is to laminate them, punch a hole in the corner and attach them with a binder ring.

Great for literacy centers, early finishers, and small group intervention.

• 10 Task Cards (6 questions each) + 10 Answer Keys (Includes white and colored background)
• Recording sheet to show completion of each card

Topics include:
• Simple, Compound or Complex Sentence?
• Independent or Dependent Clause?
• Simple Subjects
• Simple Predicates
• Make a Compound Sentence
• Make a Complex Sentence
