Having seen so, so many worksheets on punctuation, I finally decided to create this pack - based on cherry picking the best ideas from countless text books and worksheets.
It covers a range of the punctuation used up to Year 6 and provides succinct definitions and plenty of varied practice for each topic.
Mastering punctuation is essentially practice, practice, practice... we all have able Year 6 children who simply forget basic capital letters and periods! So these worksheets, a real labor of love, are designed to provide this essential practice.
-Capital letters and proper nouns
-Capital letters and periods
-Sentence endings: exclamation marks and question marks
-Apostrophes for contraction and omission
-Apostrophes for possession
-Apostrophes: its and it's
-Direct speech: sentences and paragraphs
-Various mixed punctuation exercises
Let me know if you have any questions or suggestions, and a BIG BIG thanks for looking (as a full time practicing teacher, I KNOW how time consuming this process can be).
ALL my postings are FULLY "classroom-tested" - before I publish, my lessons are tested by both myself and colleagues, rigorously evaluated and discussed, and continually updated to maximize their effectiveness.
But there is always the possibility of error and room for improvement, so do please provide constructive feedback.
REMEMBER... you can earn TpT credits if you leave comments, and I can increase my credibility and reputation. WIN-WIN!
