Students will enjoy thinking about subject and verbs as two parts that must work together to form a clear idea. Students will create mixed-up sentences as a class, then write funny stories that peers can revise.
This lesson includes a bunch of hands-on activities to get little writers excited about complete sentences. After learning about subjects and predicates, students will tackle the challenge of writing their own sentences and fragments.
Are your students having trouble taming run-on sentences into a more manageable length? In this lesson, your students will learn to not only recognize a run-on sentence, but also how to stop it in its tracks.
