Romeo and Juliet Fragments Practice- Digital and Paper/Pencil
Reinforce plot elements from Romeo and Juliet for your students as they identify and correct incomplete sentences in these two different activities presented in BOTH DIGITAL and PENCIL/PAPER forms in editable Microsoft Word documents and fillable documents. These worksheets are ready for you to upload to your LMS or copy and hand out in your classroom.
In the first activity, students in pairs or individually will cut apart and combine 13 different sentence fragments to create five complete sentences. Using cooperative learning and hands on learning, students will be ready to justify to the class each type of fragment as having no subject, having no predicate, being only an adjective phrase, a prepositional phrase, an appositive phrase or being a subordinate clause or a relative clause.
In the second independent activity, students are given 10 sentence fragment examples related to Romeo and Juliet that they must change into complete sentences. Students will also explain why each is a fragment, based on the list of six possible reasons given.
Each activity comes with an answer key for your convenience and is suitable for general education students as well as gifted ones.
These activities provide the perfect pause to review sentence structure or sentence patterns during your Romeo and Juliet literature unit, in a digital literacy center, or as a follow-up to your Shakespeare unit. They also help prepare students for grammar sections on standardized tests.
Follow up with students creating examples of their own incomplete sentences and trading them with others to label and correct.
