Do your students need an intervention? Are they using commas in the place of semicolons and throwing caution to the wind with sentence structure rules? This compound sentence mini unit is just right for introducing or reviewing compound sentence composition and punctuation rules. It can be a quick stand-alone unit, or it could be used to supplement your existing teaching materials.
Included in this mini unit, you will find:
1. A PPT presentation
to introduce or review the concept of compound sentences. The presentation is editable in that you can add or delete slides, but existing text and graphics are secured.
2. A one-page student note graphic organizer
they can refer back to during independent or guided practice.
3. 5 practice activities
, including 2 traditional worksheets, 28 task cards, an identification maze, and a short writing extension assignment that asks students to put their abilities to the test.
4. A short quiz
to track students' understanding. The quiz can be used as a post-assessment only or as a pre- and post-assessment.
5. Answer keys
for all of the assignments and the quiz.
6. A suggested use page
With this mini unit, you'll find just about everything you need to get started with compound sentences. In a middle or high school classroom with 45 minute class periods, this mini unit takes approximately four days.
I highly recommend you precede this unit with instruction or review on parts of speech, parts of a sentence, phrases, fragments, run-ons, and simple sentences.
