Product Description
Because the comma splice is a common error found in writing from all grade levels, it merits an in-depth study. This set of bell work uses paragraphs taken from a non-fiction article about reading to young children. Since most students will one day be parents, this is great topic to cover while correcting comma splices!

This product offers the following:

--Five days of bell work. Each day features one paragraph from an article on the importance of reading to young children. These paragraphs contain 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-one 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 explain one way they can correct comma splices.

--A list of teaching tips to help you use this product with your class. This list also includes a link to the article used in the bell work.
