Complete sentences and details are important to a second grader’s writing. These stories should be written in complete sentences. They should also use detail. If a student is lacking in those areas, the teacher should ask for clarification. In this quiz, the students will identify complete sentences, complete the sentences with either a verb or subject and clarify or add detail to a sentence.
