These task cards are perfect for teaching and reviewing sentences, fragments and run-on sentences! The first 12 cards ask students to differentiate between the three types of sentences - complete sentences, sentence fragments, and run-on sentences.The second 12 cards ask students to correctly rewrite sentence fragments and run-on sentences.

These cards also include QR codes! If students have a device that can scan QR codes, they can check their own work! They can write the answer on paper, then use their device to see if their answers are correct. Students LOVE this feature!

If your students do not have devices, or you don't want them to use them, I left the original cards without QR codes.

These cards can be used in multiple ways:

* individual: great for students who need extra practice and also great for students who finish early

* partners: great activity for reading instruction or students who finish early

* small group: great activity for the teacher to do with a small group that needs extra practice or a challenge; can also be used in a small group in rotations

* whole group: these cards work great when used as a "Scoot" game; they also work well if you place them randomly around the room and let students walk around to complete them

There are 24 cards in this set.

* Cards 1-12 ask students to identify whether groups of words are sentences, sentence fragments or run-on sentences.
* Cards 13-24 give students sentence fragments and run-on sentences that they must rewrite correctly.

I have included an answer sheet and an answer key.

** I included 2 sets of cards.

The first 24 cards DO NOT have QR codes.
The second 24 cards DO have QR codes.
(Both sets have the same questions.)

I created these cards for you to print on card stock and laminate. I hole punch mine in the top corner and keep them on a book ring. You can print multiple sets so that several students can work at once.

This game was created for fourth grade standards, but would easily serve third grade (for a challenge) and fifth grade (for review).
