This Christmas themed unit introduces using commas in a series. My students always have Christmas on their minds during December so making everything Christmas related helps to keep them engaged.
This unit includes:
1 introduction sheet.
2 pages where students find the mistakes in letters to Santa (I would model completing one on my ActivBoard and have students complete the other independently or with a partner).
2 pages where students insert commas in the correct places in sentences.
1 page where students write a sentence about three pictures and must use commas in a series.
5 writing prompts where students can write a sentence or paragraph where they will need to use commas in a series (I would model writing one myself on the ActivBoard. When I model writing a paragraph, I list three items separated by commas in the first sentence and add details about each item in the following sentences. After modeling, I would have students complete some independently and some with a partner).
2 letter organizers for students to write letters to Santa where they can list the items they want using commas in a series.
Full color and black and white versions.
