Need to teach or review common comma rules? This product engages small groups of students in working cooperatively to analyze example sentences and determine a comma rule. Instead of you lecturing on eight different comma rules, have groups work cooperatively in an inquiry-based approach. Groups will analyze sentence structure of given sentences and come up with their own comma usage rule and examples, then students will participate in a gallery walk in order to learn about and take notes on the other seven rules. This product also includes independent practice sheets, an exit slip, and a mini-poster for each rule that you can display in your classroom. This is a much more engaging and fun approach to teaching or reviewing commas!
Comma rules covered: Items in a series, quotations, introductory information, transitions, appositives, conjunctions, adjectives before a noun, city/state and dates.
Included in this bundle:
-Anticipatory set poster
-8 Mini-posters (also available separately as a free product)
-8 different small group sheets
-Student note sheet
