Ready, Set, Revise!
Multiple choice tests like the STAAR can be overwhelming for some students. One way I prepare my students is by helping them locate and identify distractions among the answer choices.
This activity will give students practice examining and comparing correctly written sentences with run-on sentences that were actually used on released STAAR exams as answer choices.
The sentence sort activity can be done individually, with small groups or partners, or laminated and placed in a center. It also works great as part of a writing camp fun day or week.
I'm hoping you will find this activity a quick and easy resource to review run-on sentences with your students before the upcoming test!
NOTE: If you find that your students need more work on this, I have just uploaded a more intensive product to help you out!
