Let's diagram a sentence together!
Deck the halls with boughs of holly.

We had a big winter storm here in Minnesota recently, and it made me especially happy that my family and I had ventured to a dreamy Christmas tree farm earlier in the week to purchase our Christmas tree. It's a task that's much easier completed without 8 inches of snow! 

Today, we're diagramming a sentence from a Christmas song.

Deck the halls with boughs of holly.

If you already know how to diagram, try diagramming that sentence before you peek at the answer below.

When you scroll down, you'll also find a key that tells you about each word in the sentence and links to a lesson about that concept. That way, you can easily learn more if you'd like.
