Just curious for all your parents... What grade did your kids start having to learn how to diagram sentences? Thanks

Default Diagramming Sentences

Teacher, not parent, here.

Diagramming is typical middle school fare, usually 7th grade. However, kids as young as 3rd or 4th can handle it, if the complexity of the sentence is controlled.

They are doing it in 6th grade. Mine are doing it now. We never did it when I was a kid - they had done away with it.

Mine is 6th grade too (almost done, track 1) she said they haven't done it in the way we used to do it.I showed her pictures, she had no idea what it was. But they do learn parts of speech and identify parts of a sentence. My high schooler has never seen it either.

We never did it and I haven't paid much attention to it. It looks like I've seen it done in the past but I'll double check their papers. I really detest going through their binders. A rat might pop out or something.

I did it in 6th grade, back in 1977-1978.

My 5th grader hasn't started yet, though they require them to distinguish possessive pronouns and the like.

Thanks-my 3rd grader started to do it. I remember doing it in 7th grade-maybe more complex-but definately not in 3rd grade. He was struggling with it so I had to remind myself that it is not easy for a 3rd grader to get the concepts!!

Agreed. I did it in 6th grade. I don't see the point of trying it with the 3rd grade.

Speaking of 3rd grade, did anyone see the video circulating on the web yesterday about the 3rd grader (9 years old) who came up with a funny word problem to depict 20-13=7? He basically wrote "Bobby has 20 girlfriends. He unfortunately had to break up with 13 of them. How many girlfriends does Bobby now have?"

Everyone was all like "Oh how cute." and I was thinking "Really? 20-13 in 3rd grade?". The kids in 2nd grade in Wake schools are doing subraction of 3 digit numbers with borrowing, although they call it "un-grouping" now.
