It seems that properly placing commas is a lost art! My 5th graders struggle to remember to add this important punctuation mark. To review and practice commas, we SCOOT! I laminate the included cards and tape one card to each desk. Then, students travel from desk to desk carrying only a pencil and their recording log. Students have 30-45 seconds at each card. When the bell rings, they move on to the next card.
A fast-paced and fun game, my kiddos love SCOOT! It’s a win-win because we cover a ton of Common Core material in a single class period.
