Commas

need to make this theme anchor chart and the other one on this blog- her lesson idea for theme is awesome too. show students this list of words and have them expand it into a sentence. then we might be able to think of movies or books that show that theme and make a sample list in our reader notebooks.

great activity to teach commas. let the students find 3 examples of commas used by authors then have them make up the rule why the comma is required. have students teach the class and then go over the 7 comma rules!
