PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In this three part practice activity, students will practice using
semi-colons correctly.

Part 1 is a collection of twenty-two 8.5 X 11 inches printable, informational posters. You may also use these with your computer and a projector. The posters present information for the correct use of semi-colons in writing. They compare and contrast semi-colons with commas and periods and use analogies to help make this often misunderstood punctuation symbol easier to use. The information stresses two rules for the use of semi-colons: 1) using semi-colons with commas for punctuating items in series and 2) using semi-colons to join two related independent clauses.

Part 2 is a collection of ten half page activity cards. We have included
lines so the “cards” can be cut apart if you wish. These are designed to
provide students with practice and reinforcement of the two semi-colon rules discussed in the poster collection. The first five cards address Rule 1 (semi-colons with commas in a series), and the last five cards present practice for Rule 2 (joining two independent clauses with a semi-colon).

Part 3 is a collection of five writing prompts. Activities 1-3 stress using semi-colons with commas in a series, and activities 4-5 stress joining related sentences with a semi-colon.

Please see our preview file for examples of each of the three parts of this
activity.
