Sentence Variety

Good writes will vary their sentence structure to add interest and to communicate more effectively. This skill teaches three common sentence types: compound sentences, complex sentences, and compound-complex sentences.

These three writing types will help students write with more style and teach them basic grammar rules.

Literacy Standards In Action

We've mapped our literacy lessons and reading, speaking, and writing skills to state standards, Common Core, and NGSS. The standards are "the what" to teach. Our lessons are "the how" to meet the expectations defined by the standards. Click on the links below to view our quick reference table that maps standards to literacy lessons.

L1
Demonstrate command of the conventions of standard English grammar and usage when writing or speaking.
L2
Demonstrate command of the conventions of standard English capitalization, punctuation, and spelling when writing.
