I have combined all of my recent mini-lessons on grammar and usage here in this convenient packet. I created these when I started to notice the same errors on my students' papers, and the practice has helped immensely. When students understand the rules of grammar and can show what they know in practice, their other work will improve.
Here is what you get:
Semicolons, Colons & Commas
Subject Verb Agreement
Unnecessary Punctuation: Commas
Please click on the links above to make sure these are right for you. They are priced at $1.50 each, so it's definitely worth it to purchase the bundle!
I realized that when I began with commas and other marks, then moved to usage, students were much more successful in their implementation of the skills they learned.
I hope you find these effective for your classes!
