When does an apostrophe go inside the "s" and when does it go outside? What are the rules for using commas? What kinds of words are capitalized?
This interactive CD gives students practice in identifying and working with the basic punctuation marks to improve reading and writing skills. The CD is divided into six parts, one for each type of punctuation: apostrophes, commas, periods, question marks, quotation marks, and capital letters. Each section:
- Defines the type of punctuation and its usage
- Gives examples to illustrate the definition
- Provides a range of interactive exercises to develop and consolidate understanding
- Offers additional printable activity sheets to extend the learning.
Ideal for use with the interactive whiteboard, or for individual practice with a computer, this flexible resource lets students click and drag punctuation marks for some activities and enter their answers using a pop-up keyboard for others.
