  • Did you know about the importance of punctuation?

Meet Punky Pig

Did you know that periods, commas, reading sentences and emphasizing questions or exclamation helps the reader?

Use punctuation to help your child in several different ways:

  • Reading sentences instead of line by line helps with fluency and understanding;
  • Pause for commas and periods. A shorter pause for commas and a longer pause for periods;
  • Understand questions and exclamation points to demonstrate emphasis, excitement, surprise and other strong emotions.
