A cut and match activity to help your students correctly punctuate sentences.
Your class will love to use these cute puppets to help them fix these badly punctuated sentences!
- Cut out the punctuation puppets and attach to a paddle pop stick or a strip of paper to make a finger puppet.
- Print out the sentences on Landscape A3 paper. Cut out each sentence and combine into strips to display on your whiteboard or wall.
- Invite your students to hold up their punctuation puppets to fill in the boxes where the punctuation is missing.
Please note: Some sentences are missing only one type of punctuation, while some are missing multiple punctuation marks.
Differentiate this activity by creating further sentences to ‘fix’ that are missing a colon, semi-colon, hyphen and en-dash (puppets provided).
