use the overhead to model.....use your own writing, and even better, ask some of your students if they would mind if you shared their run on sentences to the group as a mini lesson........explain to them this is something the whole class is working on! If not, use made up ones. MODEL MODEL MODEL-cut up on overhead and as a class FIX it!
Another fun things to do is cut up the sentences and have kids in small groups rebuild the sentence, allowing them to break it up and add words and punctuation, they then can share with the class in their group.
one more thing comes to mind, introducing and practicing transistion words.
As always, seek great examples from quality read alouds.
