Welcome to today’s class!!

We are excited to have you join our class!!

In today’s English class, we will be learning about Sentence Building

Stay with me!

Sentence Building

The first time we learned about Sentence Building, we looked at how neatly we place papers to form blocks. We also compared sentence building to how arrangement is important when gathering items. Today, let’s take a step further to discuss more about Sentence Building. 

sentence building

Sentence building is the order of all the parts in a sentence, for instance this includes subject, predicate, objects, phrases, punctuation, and so on.

A good understanding of Sentence Building is important to your success in English Language. 

Let’s take an example. 

  • Lionel Messi passes Christian Ronaldo the ball.

Can you identify the verb, subject, direct object, and indirect object in that sentence? Listen carefully…

  • The verb is passes because that’s the action in the sentence. 
  • The subject is Lionel Messi because Messi is the person who passes. 
  • The direct object is the ball because the ball is the thing being passed. 
  • The indirect object is Christian Ronaldo because Ronaldo receives the ball. 

Now Let’s Look at Sentence Building Structure Rules

Aside from knowing the parts of a sentence, you also have to follow the grammar rules. 

  • Capitalize the first letter of the first word in a sentence. 

E.g He is a boy. 

  • End a sentence with a period, question mark, exclamation point, or quotation marks.

I am a boy!

  • Most of the time, the subject of the sentence comes first, the verb comes second, and the objects come last. (Subject -> Verb -> Object)

Ade rides bicycle – Ade is the subject; rides is the verb; while the object is bicycle. 

In summary, Sentence building consists of everything that makes a sentence complete, presentable and acceptable. 



What are the things you must include to make your sentence complete?
