“Clauses Unit 2”, Literacy Early High School


 Clauses Unit 2

Clauses Unit 2 is a 2-page worksheet on clauses and follows on from Clauses Unit 1. Better knowledge in this aspect of grammar assists children with reading.

About Clauses Unit 2

  • In this lesson there are 24 sentences.
  • The student identifies the main clause and subordinate clause in each one.
  • The sentences are constructed on a set pattern so the student can learn easily.
  • There are explanations and examples.
  • The demonstrative pronouns, that and who, are also introduced.

This is suitable for Grade 5 upwards. Any student who has not been taught this explicitly in class needs to do this work.

Students can read and write better – a lot better – when they understand how sentences are constructed. And what makes a sentence is the main clause.

For many reasons parents want to teach their own child. I have used this material many times in my own teaching work and I have edited it especially for parents to use. It is straight-forward and self-contained in the content.  So anyone can teach using this worksheet set.
