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.

How do students edit the worksheets, whether RTF or PDF? In these days of distance learning, my fellow teachers and I are looking for editable digital resources that kids could turn in… The homophones worksheets look great, but how would we see their answers?
Mr. Morton/ May 14, 2020
I don’t recommend that students use those formats. Those are for printing and editing.
For online learning, I recommend that you use my online worksheets:
Or maybe my parts of speech app:

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.
Don/ January 24, 2017
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!
Mr. Morton/ March 14, 2017
That means a lot to me. Thank you for taking the time to comment.

Great worksheets but do you think you could put more lessons and answer sheets. If possible would you email me to talk.
Mr. Morton/ April 21, 2014
I am working on it.
There will be major content additions by the fall of next year.
Krishna/ January 12, 2014
This is great site and I wish there were more topics covered from grammar area. It has been a great help to me especially when I need the worksheet for subs or myself at times of urgency or hurry. Love this site and its materials. They perfectly match my ESL students’ abilities. Thanks.
Mark/ January 10, 2014
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.
Mr. Morton/ January 11, 2014
Thanks for helping to spread the word. Best wishes!
chris/ March 2, 2013
i got a c on my report card how can i improve
Mr. Morton/ March 3, 2013
I suspect that you need to pay closer attention to your instructor, ask questions when you do not understand the material, and complete all of your assignments.
