Ellipses are traditionally used to show when text has been deleted from a quote. Modern usage, however, allows for greater creativity, such as using them to generate… suspense. This week’s Super Sentences are meant to utilize ellipses in this way. They’re difficult for young writers to handle, but Room 15 kids have done a nice job of trying them on.

Room 15 kids learned ho to write sentences using a colon to introduce a list. If the did it correctly, the phrase preceding the colon could stand alone as a complete sentence and it introduces the subject of the list. The items after the colon should be a list, with each item separated by a comma. This week’s topics were Endermans (apparently a video game creature), pantyhose, and Christoph Columbus.
