It can be hard to get students to identify where they should place commas. One of the places that commas should be used to set off interrupters, words that interrupt the natural flow of a sentence. These words are not important to the overall text and can be deleted. Sometimes, students have problems recognizing those interrupters.
These are 24 task cards will help your students recognize interrupters. The first 10 cards ask students to recognize the introductory word. The next 10 task cards ask the students to identify the interrupter and to set it off with commas. The last 4 cards ask the students to choose the sentence that correctly identifies the interrupters.
I especially designed these cards for students who are struggling to realize that interrupters need to be set off with commas.
These are also great to use with special education students. These cards can be used as bell ringers, exit slips, or as a pre-test or post-test activity for young learners.
I recommend printing these cards off on cardstock and laminating them. This way you can use them over and over again. You can use these cards as they are or place them on book rings to help keep them organized.
