Keys to Punctuation Mini Lessons & Homework Review
(Levels 1 - 3)
These lessons are leveled to ensure students demonstrate learning in a variety of ways which better prepares them for standardized testing.
Each worksheet comes with a stated LO (learning objective) and guided lessons (simple step by step notes) on the left column. Students can easily reference these notes while working. The two additional columns of problems provide ample opportunities for guided and independent practice. Two DOL (demonstration of learning) problems at the end provide the teacher with an opportunity to assess learning and take grades as needed.
A second worksheet provides homework review that aligns directly to the lesson. Additional mixed review worksheets provide the essential review and reteach that is needed to ensure mastery.
note: I am continually uploading additional lessons and expect to have additional levels of mini lessons available this year.
Using this instructional format has engaged my struggling learners and allowed them to demonstrate consistent growth.
* Use commas to separate a series of three or more events
* Use commas to separate items of three or more in a list
* Recognize when when a series of events or a list does not need commas.

(and, but, so)

Review 1 - 2 Provides two opportunities for review and reteach
Level 3: Improve reading comprehension and fluency of text by adding needed capitalization and punctuation
* Capitalize the first word in sentence
* Use end punctuation (periods) to show completion of a sentence\
* Add commas in series or lists of three or more
* Add commas to separate compound sentences
* Each Level comes with 2 skill worksheets and 1 writing activity.
The skill worksheet comes with a guided lesson (simplified notes) on the left column that the students can easily reference while working. The first worksheet provides 12 guided or independent practice problems and 2 DOLs (Demonstrations of Learning). The second worksheet is designed for homework review.
note: Homework is only effective if it is reviewed the next day. For struggling learners only assign 3 or 4 problems a night.
I find that my special education students benefit from using the worksheet for a lesson in class and then taking the worksheet home for homework that day or a few days later.
These materials have proven to be an effective tool when modifying lessons for remedial students and providing mandated IEP, ESL, or 504 modifications as it provides comprehensive and sequential remediation of skills, concepts, and problem solving applications.

note: I have received great feedback from parents that felt these
materials provided them with an effective structured approach
to home study and review.
Accuracy is very important to me. I only sell materials that I myself use and attempt to have made all corrections before uploading. If you find an error, notify me and I will make corrections and send them to you in a timely manner.
