PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Teach how to use punctuation (commas, parentheses, dashes) to set off nonrestrictive/parenthetical elements. The lessons address the Common Core Language Standard 6.2a (Each lesson takes about 45 minutes and I teach them over the course of 3 days.)

The following explains the structure of the lessons. All the materials are provided for you to follow these procedures. *Answer keys are provided.

1. Discover the Craft

You will present three examples of the grammar or language rule/skill. Ask the students to read over the examples and tell you what they notice. Use the prompts/probes to guide students to the rule/skill.

2. Teaching Point

Write down the rule/skill together and have students copy it below the three examples on their Discover the Craft sheet. This sheet should be put into their notebook or kept as a collection in their folder as notes.

Teach students why, when or how you would use this rule.

3. Active Engagement

Students will then do a grammar hunt sheet for the skill/rule where they will practice the rule/skill. End the hunt with a share between partners and reveal the answers or examples to the class.
