Double Negatives Worksheets

Negative words like not and no are an important part of any language. Using more than one negative word in a phrase or clause is generally considered bad grammar, however. The reason for this is that double negatives are confusing for readers and listeners. There is usually a simpler way to say or write it without using so much negation. Below are worksheets to help students recognize and avoid using double negatives. If you like these resources, visit my page on double negatives for an additional PowerPoint
and video lesson on double negatives.

    I love these!!! They’re helpful for all of my students no matter their level. What I have had trouble finding anywhere is a quiz on adjectives and adverbs that compare. I made my own of course, but just for thought, they are hard to come by even as worksheets!! 🙂 Thanks for all you do.

    Mr. Morton,

    I teach remedial grammar at a local university. I find that your work supports me in my instructional process to reach these students who may have not been “tuned in” during high school.

    Thanks for the work you do and allowing us access to this—you are always referenced!

    Kudos. I’m sharing this with all my fellow homeschooling parents. I’d like to suggest a zip file holding the whole package for easy download. I haven’t found anything that isn’t very useful, especially the ppts, nicely done. Having the stories separate from the instruction (mostly) lets me exchange them for some tailored to my kids’ ages.

    thanks again.
