  • Project selected sentences onto the board for learners to correct as a class
  • Encourage individuals to write their vocabulary sentences with semicolons, proper nouns, commas in a series, or another written convention from the resource
Classroom Considerations
  • Instruction pages are a little wordy, and are more helpful as planning tools for a lesson than as handouts for learners

Cons
  • None
