How to Identify Complete Sentences and Fragments
A sentence is a word or group of words with a complete thought. Sentences always begin with a capital letter and end with punctuation. A complete sentence must have a subject and a predicate. If a sentence is missing information, like the subject or a predicate, we call it a sentence fragment. We correct sentence fragments by adding the missing information. Complete sentences and fragments worksheets are available to be printed for continued practice.

How to Identify Run-On Sentences
If a sentence has too much information, we call it a run-on sentence. We correct it by adding punctuation to separate into two independent thoughts or join the thoughts together with a conjunction. A run on sentences worksheet is available to be printed for continued practice.

Let's read through Pip's letter and correct the sentence fragments and run-ons. Dear Nana, It's me, Pip! I hope you are doing well! That I miss you. 'That I miss you ' is not a complete thought, so we need to correct it by adding the missing information. We add the subject to the sentence. Since Pip is writing the letter, the subject would be I and we put it here. The predicate is what Pip wanted to do. He wanted to tell his Nana that he missed her, so we'll add the words I wanted to tell you here. The complete sentence says I wanted to tell you that I miss you! Koko and I are living in a treehouse. Koko is my best friend we go everywhere together have so much fun. This is a run-on sentence because there is more than one complete thought that is not connected properly. The first complete thought is 'Koko is my best friend', so we will put punctuation here. Since a new sentence starts here, we now need to capitalize the
