Comma Activity for First Graders
To make the comma pieces, I used recycled bottle caps. Save those milk jug, juice jug, and bottle tops! (Using the commas, my friends!)
I cut a circle from a label sheet using a small circle cutter. Peel the backing from the label sheets and stick the circles onto the bottle caps.
Use a black marker to draw a comma onto the bottle cap. Instant comma.
I wrote a few large sentences on printer paper and showed Big Sister how to move the comma pieces into the correct places.
She really got into this activity. We made date and series sentences for her to practice. This is an activity that she wanted to do each day after school.
