Sentence Diagramming

You probably already know that I'm crazy about diagramming sentences. Sentence diagrams are fun to make, and they are an immensely helpful tool for people who are teaching and learning grammar. 

If you don't know what sentence diagrams are, think of them as pictures of sentences. Each sentence's "picture" shows us how the parts of the sentence are related. 

Today we'll look over two sentences from the Get Smart and Stay Smart programs. Are you ready to diagram? Great!

I walk quickly. 

The sentence diagram above shows us that I is the subject, walk is the verb, and quickly is an adverb modifying the verb walk. Doesn't it make a nice little picture?
