This Publisher document will help your students identify the sentence bad guys that trip them up in their own writing and on multiple choice tests that have questions such as "What is the best way to combine sentences 23 and 24?"
This engaging resource gives a name and a face to the bad guys: Run-on Ralph, Fragment Fred, Awkward Arthur, and Comma Splice Carl. In other words, run-ons, fragments, comma splices, and awkward sentences.
This document is meant to be completed as students view the PowerPoint presentation available in my store:
Bad Guys PowerPoint
Also available in a bundle: Sentence Bad Guys Bundle
This is a great resource for 4th, 7th, 9th, and 10th grade writing STAAR.
I also created a PowToon to introduce the bad guys and accompany the PowerPoint. You can access it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F7WzRdxC1UM&t=4s
