Practicing Our Punctuation

Tuesday's lesson in our Writer's Toolbox had us learning about the importance of punctuation. One little comma can completely change the meaning of a sentence!

Today we will be looking at some fun ways of practicing with punctuation. Our first game has you select the appropriate type of punctuation and aim your paint canon where it needs to go. Our second game gives you the chance to compare two similar sentences with the commas in different places. Click on the sentence with the proper punctuation. Our last game is called the Comma Chameleon, and he is hungry for some delicious punctuation.

Remember to consult your Writer's Toolbox for clues to help with these three games.

Have fun!
