Speed dating with a sentence is a fun, interactive way for students to identify the difference between run-ons, fragments, and complete sentences. Each card is designed to look like a dating profile card (complete with hilarious interests). The about me section of each card has a sentence, which the students must identify as a run-on, fragment, or complete sentence. The included timed powerpoint timer gives the student 60 seconds at each "speed date" before they must move on to their next card. At the end, students will complete a "perfect match" sheet where they must name which daters were complete sentences, making them their perfect matches.
