Product Description
Imagine eliminating comma splices from your students’ writing. This feat is unlikely to be accomplished with run-of-the-mill worksheets that feature isolated sentences. Young writers need to study real literature and complex non-fiction. The bell work offered in this product uses paragraphs from Stealing Lincoln’s Body by Thomas J. Craughwell, an interesting account of plotting grave robbers--your students will be begging to read the book!

This product offers the following:

--Five days of bell work. Each day features one paragraph from Stealing Lincoln’s Body by Thomas J. Craughwell that contains complex and compound sentences—as well as one comma splice that has been added. Students are asked to underline the comma splice and write it correctly on the lines provided.

--A forty-six 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 students to give an example of a comma splice—while stressing that it’s a mistake that we don’t want to make in our actual writing.

You can buy all four comma splice practices at a reduced price here.
