Happy Back-to-School time (although this product's use goes beyond just this time of year)!
I put this product together to review punctuation with my middle school students, but also as an icebreaker and a little bit of back-to-school fun. Each slide personifies a specific type of punctuation (ex: Dash - interrupts others) to review and foster student discussion to answer the question: What is your "punctuation personality"?
You could have your students simply raise their hands as a poll, or defend which piece of punctuation best describes them in writing or discussion, etc. Lots of possibilities; I’d love to hear what you come up with!
10 types of punctuation included: period, comma, dash, exclamation point/mark, question mark, semi-colon, ellipsis, colon, quotation marks/quotes, and parenthesis.
