Punctuation Activity Ideas
Sentence Sorting Activity
I used our dinosaur tray labels in studio to type dinosaur inspired sentences. I created a mix of statement and question sentences. Students then need to sort the statement or question sentences into the correct punctuation box.
Contraction Folding Cards
Use this set of contraction folding cards to reinforce how contractions work with your students. They fold the cards to cover the end of the word on the left to show where the two words join together, using the apostrophe, to make the contraction.
Show Me Activity
A quick and easy activity that can be done in the last five minutes of a session. Students have this cute pockets (I bought empty CD pockets) with each of the main punctuation marks that I printed from our Superhero themed punctuation set. The students listen to a sentence that you could read out of a book or make up. They must decide which sentence ending is correct and hold it up. If they get it wrong, they must sit down. The last student standing is the winner!
