The following collection of activity sheets will present various run-on sentences. Students will be asked to correct them using one of the four different methods, either by adding their own punctuation, rewriting the sentences, or identifying which multiple-choice answer is correctly punctuated. Students will also be asked to determine whether a sentence is simple, compound, or run-on. Answer sheets have been provided for instructors, but please note that in some cases, your students' answers may vary.
An example of a run-on sentence would be: I am a boy I am lacrosse player. The reason this is incorrect is because there are basically two complete sentences fused into one. That's a reason that run-on sentences are called fused sentences.
