PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Help your students avoid short, choppy sentences! Short sentences, when combined properly, can become quality compound sentences. When students use both simple and compound sentences in their writing, it increases their sentence fluency and makes it easier for the reader to understand.

With one clever analogy, the structure of a compound sentence is introduced in Unit 4. Students practice identifying parts of a compound sentence, combine short sentences into correct compound sentences, and then write their own from scratch. Common pitfalls such as comma splices and run-on sentences are explained. This unit includes notes and practice worksheets, task cards, a practice test, and final test.
