I am thrilled to share Clever Commas with you and to use it within my own classroom! This product is intended to guide students into mastery of comma usage. For each comma rule, I have included two practice worksheets. You may choose to use one worksheet as a model to work with your students and the other worksheet for the students to do as independent practice. At the end of your comma unit, you may choose to give students the comma summative assessment.
Also included in this product is a comma rule sheet with all the rules and examples. If you would rather the students take notes of the rules and examples, I have included a blank rule sheet as well.
Finally, there are color and black and white poster sets of all the comma rules to best fit your needs!
The comma rules included in this product are:
-Use commas to separate three or more words or phrases written in a sequence.
-Use commas to separate dates, addresses, geographical locations, and titles in names.
-Use commas to separate dialogue from the rest of the sentence.
-Use commas to separate independent clauses joined by a coordinating conjunction.
-Use a comma to separate a statement from the question.
