Commas can be tricky for students to learn. However, they are truly essential to writing as well as reading comprehension. After all, these two sentences have very different meanings!
Let's eat, Susie!
Let's eat Susie!
It is important that we teach our students to effectively use commas so that they can portray the story they intend to tell in their writing and so that they can understand what they read.
In this game, I have focused on four comma rules that your students will encounter most often. have created the comma rules poster so that they are reminded of these rules during the game and afterwards, if you choose to display it in your classroom.
The forty task cards included stick with the stargazing theme of the game. The sentences given all share facts about the night sky, so you'll be throwing some science in as well! During the game, students will have to decide where the missing comma(s) need to go in each task card in order to progress on the game board.
Thank you again for your purchase. I hope you enjoy the Stargazing Commas Board Game as much as I do.
