Hyphenation conventions are the focus of CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.L.11-12.2.A.
This product contains a PowerPoint, Lesson Plan, Worksheets and an activity on the use of Hyphens.
There are many hyphen rules, but here are the 10 most common (and important) uses of hyphens:
1) Two words that, when linked, describe a noun
2.) Ex- words
3.) All compound numbers from 21-99
4.) Spelled-out fractions
5.) Self- words
6.) Well- words
7.) With figures or letter
8.) Between a prefix and a capitalized word
9.) New word blends
10.) Avoid confusion or an awkward combination of letters
The second worksheet, “Matching Hyphens with a Rule” can be completed independently.
The third worksheet “Hyphen Needed?” is a great paired activity because students can discuss which rule applies to each sentence.
Finally, the FIRST worksheet is my favorite- because it helps students focus on the message of the PowerPoint lecture. When they are finished, they have a great study sheet that lists the ten rules!
Answer Keys are provided.
