Building Sentences with the Humpties.
Second in a series of books designed to make learning to write and understanding the structure of language easy and fun, this book gives students the opportunity to see how each of the parts of speech functions in a sentence. The focus of the book is twofold: to help students learn to recognize and write complete sentences and to familiarize students with the way various parts of speech are related to one another within a sentence. The book also includes opportunities for creative expression and recreation. Sections of the book discuss what a sentence is; subjects; predicates; compound subjects; compound predicates; diagramming; objects; and four kinds of sentences. Answers and multiple copies of the cartoon characters called "Humpties" (used to mark various parts of speech) are attached. (RS)
