My students are fighting over who gets to diagram the sentence on the board when they walk into the classroom. It is a joy to see.
- Tracy, Classroom Teacher
Thank you for showing the importance of diagramming sentences in order to understand how the parts of speech work. I could not figure out how prepositional phrases could function as adverbs, adjectives, or nouns. I referenced your website and quickly learned how to diagram them, which produced instant clarity. Thank you so much!

- Diagramming quotes is always fun. Here are some famous quotes you can use that I've diagrammed for you.
I teach 10th grade English, and I didn't get grammar at all growing up. I was scared of it. Teaching it now is terrifying for me, but diagramming is helping so much, so I am teaching it to my students.
Thank you for inspiring me to love grammar and to feel more confident.

"Elizabeth, I have a class of fifth graders who just can't get enough of sentence diagramming! Thanks for the resource."
- Jennifer, 5th Grade Teacher
I've been working through the diagramming lessons with my son for some time. We do a page or two each morning at breakfast before he heads off to school. I cannot tell you how much it has helped his English grammar knowledge! THANK YOU for that!!!
