DCC Middle School Students Review with Comma Carnival


Middle school English teacher, Mrs. Ashley Nelson is always looking for new ways to make learning concepts in grammar and usage fun and exciting.  So after students in 6t and 7th grade finished a unit on commas, they reviewed by participating in a Comma Carnival.

The carnival served as a review of using commas with independent and dependent clauses, items in a series, introductory phrases and clauses, non-restrictive clauses, appositives, direct address, and quotations. The students went to themed stations where they reviewed all the above concepts. These stations included Can Toss, Fish List, Tic Tac Quote, Pick a Lollipop, and Duck Pond. They ended their time at the carnival with popcorn from the concession stand.
