This commas practice worksheet is an extension of my other commas practice product.
Commas Reference Sheet and Practice-Four Rules of Comma Usage
In addition to the four rules presented in that other practice, this one includes four more rules for comma usage, and three practice exercises on a two-sided worksheet.
The eight rules addressed are:
+ To separate items in a series
+ To separate two or more adjectives before a noun
+ Before conjunctions for, and, nor, but, or, yet, so when they join two independent clauses
+ To set off nonessential clauses
+ To offset direct quotations or the parts of a divided quotation
+ After introductory phrases and clauses
+ To set apart the parts of dates, addresses, and locations
+ After a salutation in a friendly letter, or closing in all letters
+ Commas Rules Reference Sheet for 8 common uses of commas with examples
+Write-on worksheet where students add commas, write their own sentences using the rules presented, and choose the correctly punctuated sentence among three choices
I created this for students who are ready for more than four basic rules of comma usage, so please look at the preview of both products to ensure you are getting what you want. Again, the first four rules reference page is the same in both products.
It can also be used as a review.
