How do you teach punctuation in a way that students remember and apply to their own writing? With these mini-lessons and partner and small-group activities, students catch on to the power of punctuation by looking at how favorite authors use it and by noticing it in advertising, newspapers, and all kinds of text. The author shares great ideas for using picture books and big books, chapter books and more for learning about commas, capitalization, dashes, ellipses, and more. Suddenly, students are motivated to improve the punctuation in their own writing, because they see how punctuation is used by writers they admire. Includes lots of punctuation practice ideas, teaching ideas for all year, lessons, and tips for conferring with students about their work. For use with Grades 2-5.
