Grade 4 students learn to work on writing sentences that use reason, facts and details to support their argument or opinion. We thought it would be important to help them structure sentences properly.
This section of improving sentences worksheets focus on areas that students struggle with, such as introductory sentences, adding details, double negatives and writing precise sentences.
Introductory clauses worksheets
Students identify introductory clauses in these worksheets and add commas in the appropriate place for each sentence.
Sentence starter practice
In these worksheets, students re-write sentences with alternative beginnings.
Worksheets to add details
Students are given simple sentences to which they are asked to add details.
Writing with precision
These worksheets ask students to rewrite banal sentences into more detailed and precise sentences.
Fixing double negatives in sentences
A common mistake among young writers is the use of two negatives in one sentence. Here they practice identifying the two negatives in sentences and then rewrite them.
Combining two short sentences
Another area that students should practice is to combine short sentences. To make the text read more smoothly, students are asked to combine two short sentences in these worksheets.
