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.
There is a Revised PPT with new clipart. This revised slideshow can be saved.
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.
