Sentence Diagramming: Beginning from The Critical Thinking Co.

Language Arts {The Critical Thinking Co.™}
When I was growing up I never liked Sentence Diagramming. Apparently, that has transferred to my girls too. But I do know how important it is to be able to recognize the parts of sentences and sentence ordering so that you can effectively communicate in written word. Thanks to  The Critical Thinking Co.™ and their program Sentence Diagramming: Beginning things just got a little easier!

We have used The Critical Thinking Co.™ before to help with The Basics of Critical Thinking. That was our first experience with the company and we have enjoyed using them. It is a company that offers some really fun and cool products. The products are all geared to help kids gain tools to succeed not just in school or on tests, but in challenges of life. By using their products, kids can learn to identify and evaluate the problem and then analyze it to come up with a solution. The bonus is that because of how the products teach, better test scores, grades, and problem solving are bonuses.

Some of the products offered include: Test Prep, Phonics, Science, History Detectives, Practical Critical Thinking, Critical Thinking Basics, and much more!

Their products aren’t just limited to older students either. They also offer lots of preschool and Kindergarten helps like Alphabet Song Games, Letter Sounds, Vowel Songs, and Fun-Time with Phonics.

We received Sentence Diagramming: Beginning for this round of reviews. This is a paper back work book with 12 Lessons and a Review. It is geared toward grades 3-12+. My older girls are both at a 5th grade level. Some of the beginning Simple Subject activities were easy for them. But once they got into the meat of the workbook it was challenging. It was nice ,however, that they were able to start with a concept that they already had a good grasp on. Then work up into the harder material such as Prepositional Phrases and Compound Subjects.

The lessons covered in this workbook are:

  • Simple Subject and Main Verb
  • Direct Object
  • Adjectives
  • Adverbs Modifying Verbs
  • Predicate Adjectives
  • Predicate Nouns
  • Prepositional Phrases (Adjectival)
  • Prepositional Phrases (Adverbial)
  • Compound Subjects
  • Compound Predicates
  • Compound Direct Objects
  • Compound Predicate Adjectives and Nouns

I really liked is how the book helps you visually diagram the sentence. It was really helpful for my daughter that struggles with reading to visually separate out the sentence using the provided lines. I even learned some new ways of looking at sentences and sentence structure! It has improved my girls understanding of writing and their grades have improved. It has also helped them have the confidence to complete their work without much extra help from me and they have had to spend less time on their reading/writing assignments while improving the quality of their work.


The cost of the book is also a winner! It is only $12.99 for the 72 page paperback version. The quality of printing and the laminated cover will help it be durable and usable throughout the year.
