A workbook packed with 50 punctuation activities for use in the classroom.
This teaching resource contains 50 activities that focus on punctuation. The book is designed to include five activities per week and be used across a whole term. New punctuation topics are introduced each week, with fun mazes, puzzles and games to complete.
Punctuation topics include:
- capital letters
- full stops
- commas (lists and clauses)
- question marks
- exclamation marks
- apostrophes (contractions and possession)
- quotation marks.
Use this resource in literacy rotations or grammar and punctuation lessons. Each week ends with a Punctuation Sentence Challenge, which serves as a consolidation task for students to demonstrate their understanding of certain punctuation.
This resource can be used in conjunction with the Paragraph Study Punctuation Interactive PowerPoint to cover topics in greater detail.

Fixed a typo on page 47. 'Puntuation' changed to 'punctuation'. This has given me future resource ideas though! Fixing the punctuations in puns! 😄
