There are plenty of times when you are writing that you wish to add a dramatic pause int the work. One of the easiest ways to add a pause is to use a comma, but commas can sometimes be nonessential and can break up the true flow of a sentence. Authors often will also use colons, dashes, and even ellipses to add a measure of drama. If you are trying to complete a thought or entire scene you can often use a page break to scoot your reader to another place physically. These worksheets will have students using pauses and breaks to provide a dramatic effect for their readers.
