SCOOT Your Way Through Comma Practice 

Practice using commas in dates and series with this fun game!  With this language arts center activity, first, second, and third graders will practice using commas in dates and series! 

To play, students move around the room, answering questions from a set of 24 cards. The questions can be used as individual practice, or cards can be combined into writing stations or small groups. We’ve also included a recording sheet for student use.

Through this activity, students will show the ability to use commas in dates and series.
