Are your students still struggling with run-on sentences and/or comma splice errors? If so, chances are they do not recognize the subject of a sentence (and therefore an independent clause).
This subject of a sentence PowerPoint or Google Slide presentation is aligned with NoRedInk’s lesson Components of a Sentence including “Identifying complete subjects” and “Identifying simple subjects.”
The lesson is meant to be completed on individual student whiteboards, but laptops or paper would also work.
*This lesson is in both PDF and Google Slides
Want to bring out the kid again in your middle schoolers?
Want to make learning (even grammar) fun?
Try individual student whiteboards complete with drum rolls and doodle time.
Please see my free “How I Teach with Whiteboards” for a detailed explanation of how I engage even the most hard-to-motivate-middle schoolers with these whiteboards.
