Over 250 TASK CARDS! I've combined 7 of my products to create this task cards bundle that focuses on identifying complete sentences, combining sentences using conjunctions, and where to place commas in compound and complex sentences.
Run-On Sentences Task Cards
-12 task cards ask students to identify if the sentence is a complete sentence or a run-on.
-12 task cards ask students to revise the run-on sentences.
***Note- some of these task cards have correct simple sentences
Adding FANBOYS and Commas to Compound Sentences Task Cards
40 task cards about compound sentences including selecting the best coordinating conjunction (FANBOYS) and comma placement.
-The first 12 cards are multiple choice cards asking students to select the best coordinating conjunction (FANBOYS) for the compound sentence.
-The next 12 cards are multiple choice cards asking students if the sentence needs a comma. If it needs a comma, it asks students where it should be inserted.
***Note- some of these sentences are not compound sentences and will not need commas.
-The last 16 task cards are challenge cards. They have sentences used in the previous cards; however, they are not multiple choice. These cards have two sentences, and students are asked to combine the two sentences. Answers will vary on this section.
Combining Sentences with Conjunctions (FANBOYS) Task Cards
-Set 1- 32 multiple choice task cards asking students for the best way to combine two sentences using a coordinating conjunction
-Set 2- the same 32 sentences, but without the multiple choice option to make the cards more challenging
Compound Sentences All About Dogs Task Cards
-Set 1- 20 multiple choice task cards asking students to determine the best way to combine sentences using coordinating conjunctions.
***Note- Some cards include answer choices with run-on sentences, missing commas, and/or extra commas and 2 cards only have compound predicates, so they do not need a comma.

-Set 3- Subordinate clause at the END of the sentence (NO comma needed)- This set has the same sentences as the task cards in set 2; however these 12 cards ask students to complete the subordinate clause at the end of the sentence.
