Product Description

Does pesky punctuation have you in a funk? There are so many rules about punctuation in the English language! Do you need a succinct tool that will help you to capture the most important comma rules your students need to utilize in their writing?

This mini unit features mini lessons on commas in a series, words of direct address, direct quotations, introductory material, plus four more comma rules and two semicolon rules.

RESOURCE CONTENTS...

IDEAS FOR USE

You can use this resource in different ways. For example, go through the rules and practice sentences all at once and follow up with mentor sentence application and the sorting activity. Or, you might decide to break the rules apart and use the four suggested mini lessons.

This commas and semicolons lesson always leads to engaged learning and interesting discussion amongst my students. I hope it does the same for yours.
