This is a set of ‘oversized’ punctuation marks for use on blackboards or whiteboards. I designed these before interactive boards were a part of our lives but I find the children love being involved with the ‘doing’ … therefore, they love this activity.
I simply write a passage on the board which has several punctuation errors and omissions. Children are then asked to come to the board, select a mark from the “Punctuation Box” (An old decorated shoe box) and place it on the board in the correct place using a blob of blu-tac on the back.
It is very engaging and the children love it!
