Eats, Shoots & Leaves

Why, commas REALLY do make a difference!
You might want to eat a huge hot dog, but a huge, hot dog would run away pretty quickly if you tried to take a bite of him.
Eats, Shoots & Leaves: Why, Commas Really Do Make a Difference!
If you haven't read Eats, Shoots & Leaves to your class you really should!
It's hysterical..
The students can see what happens to the meaning of a sentence when
commas are placed in the right spot, wrong spot, or forgotten completely!
After reading the book a gazillion times together we wrote & illustrated a few sentences of our own!
