Product Description
"When you master these five, you will have 90-95% of the commas you need." This list makes the quick punctuation workshop straightforward because it lays out the most often-needed commas in formal assignments. What are missing are a few rules for commas with quoted material, which I cover separately while teaching incorporation of source material. From this handout to examples on the board, to group work generating examples of each of the five, to homework pulling sentences from a kid-friendly source to show the rules in action, to a quiz at the end of the week--you've given them tools many adults don't have! English Teachers' Gold has many other helpful handouts, some of which are free, and most in Word form, so that you can modify them as needed. Check it out!
