Punctuation Puzzlers

This series provides a fun way for students to see how simple changes in punctuation can change the meaning of sentences and allows them practice with punctuation skills. The workbooks are full of passages that students must punctuate based on a picture or other context clues. The passages don't make sense until students add the necessary commas, apostrophes, and ending punctuation. Many of the passages come with hints like "add two commas and a question mark to correct this sentence" or "add quotation marks to identify who is speaking." Typically, the exercises require only editing, with students working on passages that already exist, but the books recommend having students write their own sentences to illustrate each punctuation rule. Sample lessons are provided in the backs for students who may need further guidance with the exercises. The exercises increase in difficulty through the series. Answer keys included. 44 pgs. ~ Rachel S.
