Classifying the titles of children’s songs as Sentences or Fragments is not as easy as it sounds. As a matter of fact, it requires some careful observation. The song titles listed on this set of 20 cards (two per card) are more than enough to cause 4th-6th graders to break out in a bout of thinking.
The challenge lies in the fact that song titles can be complete sentences, but they are not written in the everyday form with full punctuation and capitalization. Students have to stop and think about the requirements of a proper sentence to see how the song title measures up.
These cards, also usable as bell ringers, are a fun way to review and recheck this skill, especially for older students who will enjoy a look back at the music that was once at the top of their charts.
A cover card, a student instruction card, and an answer sheet are printed on the next-to-last page of the file.
