Sentence Building Primary 6

Welcome to today’s class!!

We are thrilled to have you join our class!!

In today’s English class, we will be learning about Sentence Building Primary 6

As children, we often play block games by taking little paper boxes or sometimes brick toys and placing them on top of each other. We do this carefully, so as not to make them scattered.

Other times we arrange our things neatly because we don’t want them untidy, right?

The way we care about those little paper boxes and our things is the same concern we have in sentence building. 

What is Sentence Building? Primary 6

 

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. 

It deals a lot with independent and dependent clauses and how they combine. Follow me to see a detailed explanation of this below. The placement of words and phrases next to what they modify, as well as the use of proper grammar.

First, let’s take a look at Basic Sentences

Every sentence requires at least a verb and a subject. As you will recall, a verb represents an action, and a subject is the noun that does the action. 

Let’s take this Example

I am waiting. 

In this example, ‘I am waiting’ is the verb. The main verb is the ‘wait’ in ‘waiting’, and the subject is ‘I’ – that is the person who waits. 

To understand this further, when we combine ‘wait’ in the present continuous, we use the –ing form and add the auxiliary verb ‘am’. That is what becomes ‘I am Waiting’.

Let’s take a look at another example

Stop!

This single word is a complete sentence. The verb is stop, and no subject is necessary because it’s a command. 

In other instances, sentences can add objects, which are nouns that also participate in the action. 

Let’s take two examples from Tayo’s experience.

Example One: Tayo cuts his hair weekly

In this example, cuts is the verb and Tayo is the subject because he is the participant. 

Example Two: Tayo lends me his calculator. 

In this example, lends is the verb and Tayo is the subject because he is the one lending. 

Now, we have come to the end of today’s class. Remember that just as your block games require careful arrangement, Sentence Building is the order of all the parts in a sentence, which includes subject, predicate, objects, phrases, punctuation, and so on.
