Product Description
Need a hand teaching grammar in a no-prep, classroom-tested, easy-to-assess manner? Use this set of tools to introduce OR review complete sentences, fragments, and run-ons to middle and high school students!

This concept is SUCH an important foundation for other (tougher) grammar topics, and these materials focus on identifying fragments (phrases & dependent clauses), independent clauses, and run-on sentences in a to-the-point manner. It also uses fun metaphors to help the concept stick. (Hint: Did you know that clauses/sentences are “like” families? …)

This 22-page set of materials hands you no-prep options for the entire learning process, from start to finish, including:
• LESSON: Use my PPT to teach it yourself, OR play my provided VIDEO (either in-class or as homework, such as for the flipped classroom model)
• GUIDED NOTES: Students follow along with the PPT or video in easy fill-in-the-blank format
• PRACTICE: Use the practice page individually, or in an in-class format (such as small groups)
• QUIZ: 10 questions, easy-to-grade
• PRACTICE TEST: Use as a second quiz or a non-graded practice test
• TEST: 20 questions, easy-to-grade
• ANSWER KEYS for everything
• BOTH the editable version AND the ready-to-print PDF
• BONUS: Extra practice sheet for identifying dependent vs. independent clauses

(Psst: Want to see a sample video? Check out my Comma Rules: Free Grammar Video Demo).

(PS – When I teach this, I do it in a fun game board style format. Read more about that in this blog post. However, this lesson set is EQUALLY designed for a traditional learning process as described above!)

NOTE: Save big by downloading ALL of my current (and future!) grammar curriculum in my Grammar Lesson Bundle, which has free updates for life!
