This week, the theme is ELA worksheets. After all, who can have too many of those?
Today's freebie (click here) is all about comparing and contrasting sentence fragments and run-on sentences.
This worksheet can be used with samples of errors that a teacher picks out, or use it to analyze a writing sample of their own. In addition, they can find the parts missing from both and draw a conclusion of what the key components are of a complete sentence.
Typically students use Venn diagrams to compare/contrast, this chart encourages them to look at attributes of each separately, then make the comparisons.
This format gives them more room to write on each topic, and a separate space to make notes of similarities and differences.
This sheet can be added to their grammar and/or writing notebook as a reference tool when they are editing writing samples.
I hope that you can find a way to use this in your classroom. Don't forget to check out the other excellent worksheets available on The Teaching Tribune.
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
