struggling with commas


Recommended Posts

What age/level? And what's the problem? Comma usage is one of those frustrating areas that lacks consensus in certain aspects, so if you have a particular standard you want to require, you'll need to make sure the resource you use doesn't conflict with that.

We worked on commas with dictation a lot. That seemed to help cement the concepts we were learning. I just pulled from read alouds and ds' individual reading. 

We learned a lot of rules with our grammar (R&S).

😬😩😳It’s for me. I can’t use commas to save my life. All through school, I just corrected the papers teachers gave back to me and I never really can figure out how and when to use commas. It’s a bit embarrassing, but true. For the record, my 10 year seems to remember all we have learned in grammar about using commas. So, there’s that. I just can’t keep this in my memory.
