The Teachers Pay Teachers Facebook Page shared this image last week proving how important correct grammar is.
Isn’t it hilarious? The reason I think it is so funny, is because of the image it draws in my mind. Well, this got me thinking… I thought that my class would LOVE an activity like this where they can giggle about the mistake, draw what comes into their minds and then correct it!
And so Punctuation Matters was created!
I figured this would be great for Monday Mornings when they are tired from the weekend. This would get them engaged instantly! There are 20 different silly sentences that have incorrect or missing punctuation. They are to draw what the sentence sounds like, edit it and draw a picture of what it actually says when correctly punctuated.
Also included are 8 punctuation posters to have around as a reference tool all year!
This would also make an adorably funny bulletin board, so I created a larger polaroid where students can draw their favorite sentence that was covered, or create their own! Also included is an adorable Chalk Board Themed bunting.
Anything that makes learning fun, a little ridiculous but covers a standard is sure to be a great lesson!
