iluv3rd---that's my problem, too! They can identify it on a sheet, but when it comes to constructing their own complete sentences they are really bad!!!!
That's why I wanted an "activity" rather than another worksheet---
ealtensee---I like your idea of using the sentence strips, but I haven't taught subject and predicate yet---should I do that BEFORE teaching the run-on/fragment stuff???
I am just tired of seeing it in their writing and decided to do it next---we just finished capital letters last week.
My kids (15 total) are all at grade level and 7 of them are at 4th or above, so you would think they would catch on quickly---yet they are still not capitalizing titles, names, or titles of books, songs, or movies!!!
IT'S MAKING ME CRAZY!!!!!!!!!!
