You would think I couldn't come up with another sentence about this book, but I have. Not just another sentence, but 42 new sentences that pair with the Punctuation Rules I posted. This is a "get them up and out of their seats" activity. A little glue or tape, some group or pair work, and a fun way to review sentence structure and By the Great Horn Spoon. Did I say fun?
