Product Description
Before students write using punctuation marks purposefully, they need to see the power of them within their reading.

Students tend to read right through punctuation marks, never stopping, pausing, or taking a breath. If students don’t adjust their voices to “read” punctuation marks, they will omit them from their writing, too.

Kristina Smekens offers a sequential list of mini-lesson ideas and activities to demonstrate the power of punctuation in reading.

This product includes:

• 10 mini-lesson ideas for targeting reading fluency.

• A sample primary punctuation chart--to record punctuation marks, voice inflection, and examples. (This chart includes the period, question mark, and exclamation mark.)

• 3 “passages” for fluency practice (“alphabet” passage, “number” passage, and “math-fact” passage).

• A sample upper-level punctuation chart—to record punctuation marks, voice inflection, and examples. (This chart includes commas, quotation marks, ellipsis, em dash, parentheses, and font styles, in addition to the period, question mark, and exclamation mark.)
