Are your students struggling with fragments and run-ons? What if you could connect lessons on that with reading and writing activities as well? This bundle of engaging lessons will help you do meaningful grammar lessons that make sense to your students.

This reading and writing bundle is all about the problems associated with disconnection (in our lives and in our writing). When we aren’t connecting with ourselves and others in the right way, we can feel fragmented, alone, misunderstood. So too can our sentences. When they are disconnected - or not connected properly - they can be misunderstood too. 

The bundle has two different sections: lessons that focus on the “fragments” of our lives and ones that focus on the importance of making connections. The idea behind these lessons is that if kids take an in-depth look at each of  these things in a way that they can relate to, then the embedded grammar lessons about fragments and fused sentences might stick.
