This three part product is designed to teach students how to recognize and write complete sentences and how to identify and correct fragments and run-ons.
The PowerPoint defines what a sentence is and explains its parts, subjects and predicates. Interactive slides require students to identify subjects and predicates in a variety of sentences. Fragments and run-ons are also defined, and the differences between them and complete sentences are explained. Interactive slides provide students practice in identifying and correcting fragments and run-ons. Students are required to take notes to use as references for practice activities. In addition, teaching tips are included as Comments for most of the slides.
Also included are Practice Activities containing four engaging tasks. In Find the Location, each student is given a card containing either a sentence, a fragment, or a run-on. They must decide which they have and go to a designated location in the room. Sentence, Fragment, or Run-on Sort requires students to sort cards into the three categories. Make a Match sends students in search of someone whose card matches theirs. For example, if their card is labeled “Fragment”, they must find someone with a card that contains a fragment sample. Finally, Editing Fragments and Run-ons gives students the opportunity to identify fragments and run-ons contained within narratives and to correct them as well.
The third component is a two part assessment. In Part 1 students must label sentence, fragment, and run-on samples. In Part 2 they must identify fragments and run-ons in a nonfiction animal report and make corrections.
