Description

This freebie offers five days of bell work reviewing the difference between phrases and clauses.

This product is based on the following ninth and tenth grade standard:

CCSS.ELA-Literacy.L.9-10.1.b

Use various types of phrases (noun, verb, adjectival, adverbial, participial, prepositional, absolute) and clauses (independent, dependent; noun, relative, adverbial) to convey specific meanings and add variety and interest to writing or presentations.

I love teaching this standard because I believe students can really improve their writing by using the phrases and clauses listed in it. Open almost any well-written book and you will find absolute and participial phrases sprinkled among complex sentence forms.

Although it may seem like a simple concept, I think it does help for students to understand the basic differences between a phrase and a clause. For this reason, I use the following format for teaching this standard.

Week One: Phrase or Clause? A Prezi, Guided Notes, Quiz, & Ticket Out and the bell work you just downloaded.

Week Two: The Absolute Phrase: A Prezi, Guided Notes, Bell Work and Activities

Week Three: The Participial Phrase: A Prezi, Guided Notes, Bell Work and Activities

And so on—until each phrase or clause mentioned in the standard is covered and students are easily using them in their writing.

The bell work in this freebie is in Microsoft Word, so you have the freedom to adapt it to your needs. It is meant to be used after you have taught students the fundamental differences between phrases and clauses. It DOES NOT cover different types of phrases and clauses.
