UPDATED: This quick and easy introduction to semi-colons, colons, and dashes will save you money and help your students get started with advanced punctuation through six mini-lessons.
You receive notes for students about how to use each one, practice exercises where students determine if the punctuation is being used correctly and a practice lesson where students practice writing their own sentences. There are also answer keys with explanations and CCSS alignment information.
**UPDATED VERSION also includes a creative/extension lesson to get your students thinking outside the box. This could also be used as the higher-level activity in a differentiated lesson.
After this, your students can begin incorporating semi-colons, colons, and dashes into their writing!
