Copy Manuscript and Cursive Sentences
The following manuscript and cursive sentences are super simple. They are samples of our printable grammar worksheets that show your kids the parts of a simple sentence.
Each set shows a particular part of speech in gray: subjects, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, and more. See them below on this page:
- Action Verb Sentences
- State of Being Verb Sentences
- Simple Sentence Construction
- Subjects in Sentences
- Adjectives in Sentences
- Adverbs in Sentences

Teach your kids penmanship while teaching grammar, capitalization, and punctuation. By nature, copying a sentence shows that a sentence begins with a capital letter and ends with punctuation. Copying the whole bit is an easy way to practice making complete sentences.
See links to more cursive worksheets below the worksheets. You'll find hundreds of cursive writing worksheets in our grammar worksheets download. They're also great for penmanship practice.

What are statement sentences? A declarative sentence makes a statement, it makes an assertion of being or action, either positive or negative.
In a way, "A subject is (to be) or does (action) a verb." Details like adjectives and adverbs transform a sentence by adding details that make the sentence more interesting. On a diagram they are like Christmas ornaments decorating the nouns and verbs.
You can use these print and cursive writing worksheets to help you teach grammar at the same time as you teach handwriting.
I've made a point to keep each sentence short enough to fit on one line so that your children can "see the whole picture". Hopefully they'll get the habit of putting a capital letter at the beginning and a period at the end. :-)
What Is A Simple Sentence? Examples
1. What Is A Simple Sentence With An Action Verb?
What is a simple sentence? The simplest sentences to make are sentences with action verbs.
- I jump.
- You jump.
- He jumps.
Short answer: A simple sentence is a statement that has one subject and one verb no matter how many adjectives, adverbs, and phrases it also has.
The important point is that there is one subject with one predicate verb. Almost all our grammar worksheets have cursive sentences to complement the manuscript versions. Your choice.
1.A. Manuscript Simple Sentences Using Action Verbs
1.B. Cursive Simple Sentences Action Verbs
2. What Is A Simple Sentence? State Of Being Verbs
A linking verb or state of being verb is like an equal sign. The subject equals the predicate noun, pronoun, or adjective. These are called predicate compliments.
- I am cold. - predicate adjective
- You are president. - predicate noun
- One is his. - predicate pronoun
The manuscript sentences are great for younger children and the cursive sentences are great for handwriting practice.

3. More Simple Sentence Construction
Remind your children to use a capital at the beginning and to put the period at the end. Double check.
Better, teach them to check their own work. Your homework? Scan the left side for capitalization and the right side for punctuation.

4. What Is A Simple Sentence Subject?
The gray word is the subject in these sentences. You can even have your children trace over the gray words as you review them in another color to emphasize the part of speech you're teaching. They're more likely to remember it better when they do the copywork.
4.A. Manuscript Subject Sentences
4.B. Cursive Subject Sentences
5. Simple Sentence Adjectives
The adjectives are in gray in these worksheets. Teach your kids about the articles:
Articles are adjectives.
These worksheets show the articles first. You can point out the other adjectives, too.
Let the light gray show the difference or have your children trace the grayed words to emphasize where the adjectives are.
5.A. Manuscript Adjective Sentences
5.B. Cursive Adjective Sentences
6. Simple Sentence Adverbs
These are the same as above, yet they teach adverbs. The definition of an adverb is at the top of each worksheet.
6.A. Manuscript Adverb Sentences
6.B. Cursive Adverb Sentences
7. Simple Sentence Linking Verbs
There are many linking verbs. Here is a sample and you can find more information on our printable grammar worksheets page. The linking verb is in gray.
Show that linking verbs are like an equal sign. What's on the left (subject) equals what's on the right (the predicate).
Subject = Predicate
7.A. Manuscript Linking Verb Sentences
7.B. Cursive Linking Verb Sentences
8. What Is A Simple Sentence Predicate?
Here the whole predicate phrase is in gray showing the verb with the predicate.
