SOS - Save Our Sentences

SOS is designed to help students recognize and revise sentence fragments and run-on sentences. This skill is tested on the Fourth Grade STAAR Writing Test in Texas.

This product contains:

a) 20 sets of 3 sentences - combination of complete sentence, sentence fragment, and/or run on sentence in black and white for easy printing

b) Teacher instructions

My students always struggled with the revising questions on the writing test because they had difficulty recognizing sentence fragments and run-on sentences. I came up with the idea of SOS.

Students are given a set of three "sentences." They have to identify whether each one is a fragment, a run on, or a whole sentence. Then they have to fix the fragment, repair the run on, and spot the sentence.

We did this every Friday for several months before the test, and my students aced the revising questions. An added bonus was that I saw a lot fewer fragments and run ons in their essays.
