Product Description
The comma splice is one of the most common mistakes in student writing, and worksheets with numbered sentences rarely seem to correct the problem. This product offers the following:

--Five days of bell work. Of course you can go over all five paragraphs at once if you're needing a more focused lesson. Each "day" features one paragraph from To Kill a Mockingbird that contains complex and compound sentences—as well as one comma splice. Students are asked to underline the comma splice and write it correctly on the lines provided.

--A forty slide PowerPoint that goes over the comma splice from each day’s bell work. It provides three ways to fix the error and goes over why the other sentences in the paragraph are not comma splices.

--A ticket out activity to be completed on the fifth day. This asks the students to explain in their own words what a comma splice is.

--Teaching tips to help you use this product in your classroom.
