Rules of Punctuation
This very fun book is teaching students so much about what reading and writing would be like if punctuation ever took a vacation. Our class decided it would make our work on writing, efforts during writers' workshop, letter writing and phonics instruction really tricky! Whether your child is learning about periods, exclamation points, colons, question marks, quotation marks, commas, or apostrophes, students are learning not to leave these important parts of writing out. Ask your first grader how their work would sound and look if those marks, "took a vacation."
