Comma Review Games
There are two game options included in this packet. The first is a whole-class indoor baseball game called “Let’s Play Ball.”
Rest assured - no balls will be flying and no students will be running. This game works well for a class that plays games together without getting outside of appropriate noise levels. This game requires a Smart or Promethean Board or some type of digital presenter. If you have a more rambunctious class, you may want to try the small group option called “Mac Attack.”
Both review games contain the same material on commas (75 sentences
to correct are the same as those in the baseball game – just different delivery options depending on your preference and your classes.) These games provide a refreshing twist for reviewing commas
. Some of the sentences are interesting facts while others are less serious - a variety of sentences to hold students’ interest. Study guide and answer key are included.
