Lesson Plan: Run-on Sentences (Primary 2)

Introduction: - Begin the lesson by asking the students if they know what a sentence is and how it is formed. - Explain that sometimes, sentences can become too long and confusing. These are called run-on sentences. - Tell the students that today, they will learn about run-on sentences and how to fix them.

Lesson Outline: 1. Definition and Examples of Run-on Sentences: - Show a short video explaining run-on sentences, such as: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3vDWWy4CMhE - Discuss the definition of run-on sentences and provide examples on the board. - Explain that run-on sentences occur when two or more independent clauses are joined together without proper punctuation or conjunctions.

  1. Identifying Run-on Sentences: - Show another video or use interactive activities to help students identify run-on sentences, such as: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3vDWWy4CMhE - Provide sentences on the board or hand out worksheets with run-on sentences. - Ask students to identify the run-on sentences and explain why they are incorrect.

  2. Fixing Run-on Sentences: - Teach students different ways to fix run-on sentences: a) Using a period: Separate the independent clauses into two separate sentences. b) Using a comma and coordinating conjunction: Join the independent clauses with a comma and a coordinating conjunction (e.g., and, but, or). c) Using a semicolon: Join the independent clauses with a semicolon. - Provide examples on the board and ask students to practice fixing run-on sentences individually or in pairs.

Questioning: - Throughout the lesson, ask questions to engage students and check their understanding: a) What is a run-on sentence? b) How can you identify a run-on sentence? c) What are some ways to fix run-on sentences?

Assessment: - Distribute a worksheet with sentences containing run-on sentences. - Ask students to identify and correct the run-on sentences. - Review their answers to assess their understanding.

Differentiation: - For students who need extra support, provide simpler sentences to identify and fix run-on sentences. - For advanced students, challenge them with more complex sentences or ask them to create their own run-on sentences and fix them.

Plenary: - Summarize the lesson by reviewing the definition of run-on sentences and the ways to fix them. - Ask students to share one thing they learned about run-on sentences. - Encourage students to practice identifying and fixing run-on sentences in their future writing.
