Need Help Teaching Basic Conventions

In an earlier post, I mentioned that I try to teach conventions through student's writing. I also hold small and whole group mini-lessons, for example a lesson on complete and incomplete sentences. As can be predicted, students never miss those. But the problem remains that they don't seem to hear that natural break/pause that flags a complete thought has been made and an endmark is needed when it comes to their own written work. I'm thinking I need to start listening more carefully for they probably speak in long run-on sentences! Has anyone been successful helping kids develop their ear along these lines?
