Add this semicolons coloring sheet to your semicolon lessons. Students will locate where a semicolon is needed in fifteen sentences and color the matching section on a coloring sheet.

This semicolon activity covers semicolons used in lengthly lists, with short independent clauses, and with conjunctive adverbs.

Included in this semicolon activity:
→ A coloring sheet (see preview). Sections are numbered. Students will color the correct portion of the paragraph that needs a semicolon according to the key.
→ 15 sentences that need a semicolon. Students will locate where the semicolon is needed and color that number according to the key. The sections can be printed for each student, or printed and cut apart to use in centers.
→ A poster printable with semicolon rules. Use this to start the lesson or for review. Encourage students to consult it as they work!
→ A picture of a finished sheet, and an answer key.

This semicolons coloring sheet is a fun take on punctuation worksheets.
