Twelve marks are introduced with a poetic definition and a frolic poem. Examples of the punctuation usage are shared. Each one can be a mentor text for your kids.

A class book idea: Using Magazines, have your students find examples of the punctuation in advertisements and articles. Create charts or books with the cut-out strips. What a great way for children to learn how punctuation is used.

    This book seemed great for teaching kids that are new to punctuation. After the basic knowledge it’s good have a stepping stone to next level of punctuation without overwhelming kids. A book I recommend as that stepping stone is The Blue Book of Grammar and Punctuation by Jane Straus. It’s very effective and informative.
