Today, instead of diagramming one of the sentences in our Essentials guide, we chose to try, try being the key word, and diagram the last sentence of the book The Black Stallion.
A picture is worth a thousand words.
My daughter was so exhausted, exasperated, etc. that she fell forward, resting her forward on the white board when we were done.
That’s how I felt after diagramming this sentence, too.
And I’m not entirely sure what we did is correct, either.
There was no answer key for us to check out work against which was kind of frustrating.
But I told my daughter (and I kept telling myself), life is often like that.
It’s still worth doing for the challenge of it and for all the things you definitely get right in the process.
