I hope you gained some great insight on fixing Fragments from the last mini lesson. This lesson will focus on how to correct Run-On Sentences!
Example: I like blueberries I don’t like bananas.
It is good practice to have students take notes on this skill. It helps with comprehension of the skill and provides them with a resource to use in the future.
For more practice, have students write their own run-on sentences and have their partner correct them. Then come back as a whole group and share some of the student samples on the board.
INDEPENDENT PRACTICE OR CENTER WORK
Next provide students with independent practice to see if they understand how to correct and run-on sentence. Task cards are a good way to practice in centers. You are welcome to use the run-on samples below when creating practice for your students.
ASSESSMENT AND TRACKING
Once you think your students have a solid grasp on the concept, provide them with an independent assessment. Track their success to use in the future when forming small instructional groups or review.
