How do I do this.

Read the journal entry about a field trip. Cross out any extra information. The underline the text where it should be divided into two or more sentences.

I liked using the heat lamp in the science activity it showed how the polar bear's black skin helps it stay and all the other activities in the science center were fun. I liked the snow slide. It was a hot day in January. It was fast and curvy at the end of the slide I got to look through the window into the bear pool I really liked the bears from the overlook. They swam and played with the ball. One of the bears climbed up on a rock and took a nap. I forgot to bring my lunch. I had a great time on the field trip.

Well I'm obviously not going to do it for you but you are supposed to be looking for run on sentences. Read through the entry (perhaps outloud might help) and you should be able to tell when the sentence seems too long. Also when there is more than one subject in the run on sentence, that should give it away as well (if you are reading and all of a sudden something doesn't really make sense with what the entry was just talking about)

Hope this helps a little bit. Good luck!

Are you really eleven and worrying about homework? That's like 6/7th grade. Say you didn't understand it, and get help from your teacher and he/she will show you how to do it.

When you're doing problems like this, it really helps to read the passage out loud. Every time you pause and start a new thought, it's a new sentence. If there's no period there, you should add one. If you find yourself repeating phrases, you've got excess information.

Things seem impossible until you start to do them.

PM me anytime. I love to talk. :]
