1 SENTENCE FRAGMENTS AND RUN-ON SENTENCES HOW TO IDENTIFY A COMPLETE SENTENCE FROM A SENTENCE FRAGMENT OR RUN-ON SENTENCE

2 WHAT IS A COMPLETE SENTENCE? A complete sentence is a group of words that expresses a complete thought and has a subject and verb. Subject Verb Example: Some architects bring nature indoors.

3 WHAT IS A SENTENCE FRAGMENT? A sentence fragment is not a complete sentence because something has been left out (either a subject or a verb). Example: In-line skates four wheels in a row. What is missing ?

4 WHAT IS A RUN-ON SENTENCE? A Run-on sentence has two or more sentences written as a single sentence. Example: The computer store is a popular spot many kids visit it.. How would you fix a run-on?

5 HOW DO YOU FIX A FRAGMENT AND A RUN-ON? SENTENCE FRAGMENT You find out what is missing and you add the missing piece. What is Missing? 1.Feature four wheels in a row. 2.In-line skates first in the 1700s. RUN-ON SENTENCE Add an end mark and begin a new sentence; or add a comma/conjunction; or add a semi-colon. What Punctuation is Missing? 1. The movie theater is a popular hangout we go there every Saturday.

6 PRACTICE IDENTIFYING CS, SF, RO SENTENCES 1.In-line skates first in the 1700s. 2.Probably the worlds first roller skates. 3.In-line skates feature four wheels in a row. 4.In-line skates feature four wheels they first appeared in the 1700s.

7 MY WONDERFUL DISCOVERY Directions: The following paragraph contains five SFs. Find the SFs and correct them using the correct punctuation. After I had gotten up. I ate my breakfast. I heard a squeaking sound at my door. It was a little puppy that was crying. I wept. It was really cute. That I picked it up and took it inside in order to give the puppy a big bowl of warm milk and a soft blanket. I took the day off so that I could take him to the veterinarian. The vet told me he was fine. Because I had given him what he needed: milk and a warm blanket. He still needed a home. I asked all my friends to take him. They wanted the little guy. However, they couldnt keep pets in their apartment. By the time we got home. Now, he is my pet and friend.

8 CHECK TO BE SURE YOU FOUND ALL SFS 1.The first SF is the first sentence. (After I had gotten up) 2.The second SF is the third sentence. (While I was eating breakfast) 3.The third SF is the eighth sentence. (That I picked it up and took it inside...) 4.The fourth SF is eleventh sentence. (Because I hade given him what he needed…) 5.The fifth SF is the sixteenth sentence. (By the time we got home)

9 CORRECTED VERSION OF PARAGRAPH After I had gotten up, I ate my breakfast. While I was eating breakfast, I heard a squeaking sound at my door. It was a little puppy that was crying. I wept. It was really cute. I picked it up and took it inside in order to give the puppy a big bowl of warm milk and a soft blanket. I took the day off so that I could take him to the veterinarian. The vet told me he was fine because I had given him what he needed: milk and a warm blanket. He still needed a home. I asked all my friends to take him. They wanted the little guy. However, they couldnt keep pets in their apartments. By the time we got home, I realized that I should keep him. Now, he is my pet and friend.
