Athy’s class diagramming a sentence – one of my favorite activities to watch!
The kids orally work through a question and answer flow. For example, “The bears ran to the woods.”
The kids say:
1. What ran to the woods? bears – Subject Noun
2. What is being said about bears? bears ran – Verb
3. To – Preposition
4. To what? woods – Object of the Preposition
5. The – Article adjective
6. The – Article adjective
The (a) bears (SN) ran (V) to (P) the (A) woods.(OP)
Miss Lien leads our first graders as one group stands to orally diagram a sentence using the “Shurley Method.”
Canterbury students develop a love of the English language and the ability to use it correctly with ease and confidence.
