Looking for a way to "spice up" your grammar activities?
These "Sentence Variety" task cards combine two components with sentence variety - critical thinking and group work!
This activity expects students to find the 3 other students who have the same original sentence as they have,then in groups they are to determine which of the 4 sentences is the BEST correction of the original. Finally, they are to determine what is WRONG with the other 3 sentences. (fragments, run ons, comma splices/fused sentences, awkward sentences, etc.)
This activity is aligned to the STAAR ENG 1 and ENG 2 EOC TEK 17(C) use a variety of correctly structured sentences (e.g., compound, complex, compound-complex) [Readiness] )
These are formatted to print on 4X6 index cards, but could be printed and cut on letter sized paper. Also, these are fully editable since they have been created in a Word.doc rather than saved as a PDF.
