This bundle includes two charts:
1. Fluency in Reading
How does punctuation tell us how to change our voice in
2. Fluency in Writing
When do we use different types of punctuation in our Writing?
In my classroom, I used this as morning work. Students would come in and grab that mornings definition/explanation and glue it next to the correct punctuation. For example, Monday I gave out "We stop reading and take a breath" and students glued it next to "Period" under "How We Read It". Tuesday, I moved onto the next type of punctuation and so on. It made great morning work because then in Reading (immediately after) we talked in greater depth about how to read the punctuation and read example.
Then, in Writing, we started our lesson by doing the same thing - gluing in the piece that tells us how we use that punctuation in our writing. When they were finished - it became a chart to reference in their writing folder.
I gave this to a colleague of mine and she had her students color code it so visually it was easier to track. (The Period box and the Period explanation was colored red, The Comma box and the Comma explanation was colored orange, etc).
The very last page was designed to use on a Smart Board or Interactive White board and put up a curtain. Read each sentence one by one focusing on the italicized word, the bold word, etc. and notice how the same sentence changes depending on which word is emphasized.
