Concerned that your students are having difficulty applying proofreading in authentic text? I created this unit specifically for my class for this very reason. This unit contains 6 pages of independent practice where students are asked to sort and identify sentence patterns and various word terms, including:
*noun, verb, conjunction, proper nouns, adjectives, adverb, preposition
*complex and compound sentences
*dialogue with speaker tag in different locations
*simple predicate and simple subject
*subject and predicate
*changing verb tense
*replacing boring words with interesting words.
To assist in the management of these pages, there is a blackened master and colored copies. If a card gets lost, students will know where it belongs. Each card can be used with the worksheet provided or students may just use the words to create various types of sentences. There is also a blank template for you to use to create your own sentences.
This product can be used in small group or for independent work during small group instruction. It may also be used for grading purposes.
