Are your students still struggling to identify sentence types? Having difficulty distinguishing between fragments, run-ons, and complete sentences? While students are taught about simple sentences as early as elementary school, some middle and high school students need yearly refreshers on sentence types.

This mini unit packs a powerful punch. Help students to see the value of sentence variety as well as to hone the most basic of sentence structures - the complete thought! - while avoiding fragments and run-ons.

*UPDATE: This resource is now ready for distance learning. Included, you will find a Google Drive™ version of each of the print activities. Google Drive™ documents are in Slides, Docs, and Forms.


1. A simple sentence PPT and Google Slides presentation, which is secured to protect fonts and graphics. You can edit it by adding or deleting slides, but the existing text is not editable.

2. 3 practice assignments which prompt students to think about how to write simple sentences, how to identify the difference between fragments, run-ons and sentences, and how simple sentences can both help them and hinder them as writers. These are included as PDF and Google Slides and Docs.

3. A short quiz that can be used as a pre- and post- assessment to track students' growth and understanding. The digital version is a self-grading Google Form.

4. Suggested answer keys for all activities and the quiz

5. Suggested sequence and use for teachers

Key Concepts:

  • simple sentences
  • complete sentences
  • subjects
  • predicates
  • fragments
  • run-ons
  • independent clause
  • dependent clause

Reminding middle and high school students about the structure of a simple sentence lays the foundation for our expectations while providing feedback on writing. Teachers expect complete sentences, and students have the knowledge of how to write them.
