Do your students need some extra help improving sentences? Do they write in fragments, run-on sentences, or in ways that don’t really make sense?
This pack is great for helping to reinforcing basic concepts that students should know but seem to struggle with.
The activities included in this packet include:
*12 Complete Sentence or Fragment task cards
*12 Run-On Sentence task cards
*12 Adding Details task cards
*12 Paragraph Repair task cards
These can be used in centers or stations over the course of a few weeks, throughout the year, or you may choose to use them as a class everyday on the Smartboard or document camera. They could be used in small group, for homework, partner work, or however you would like to use them.
You can also vary your expectations based on the grade level that you teach. For example, with the run on sentences task cards, the sentence, "We went to the beach we swam in the ocean played in the sand and laid in the sun," could be written several ways:
lower grades:(focusing on complete sentences): We went to the beach. We swam in the ocean and played in the sand. We laid in the sun.
upper grades: (add more linking words, figurative language, compound and complex sentences) We went to the beach and swam in the ocean. Additionally, we played in the sand and laid in the sun.
We went to the beach. While we were there we swam in the ocean, played in the sand, and laid in the sun.
