A game to edit run on sentences. Students must have prior knowledge of compound sentences and complex sentences.
Set up so that each team has three personal white boards a set distance away.
On the “go” cue, one member races down to grab a whiteboard and returns with it to fix the run on sentence displayed by the teacher using 1 of the 3 ways to fix run on sentences. The edited sentence should be written out on the board. When finished, a second team member races the board back and picks up another board to return to the group and fix the same sentence using a different way to fix run on sentences. When finished, a third team member races the board back and picks up the final board to return to the group and fix the sentence using the final editing strategy. Any team member may run the final board back. The entire group must sit down. The teacher will check for correct answers and give points based on number of sentences correctly edited.
