Tips for Teaching Punctuation

Good punctuation is a skill that will benefit your child for the rest of her life. Download and print our punctuation worksheets and introduce your child to the period, comma, colon, apostrophe, and more! Here are some additional strategies for teaching your child proper punctuation:

  • As you may have discovered, kids love to correct adults! One fun way to reinforce punctuation is to write a paragraph with periods, commas and questions marks all in the wrong places and ask your child to correct your work.
  • Take turns reading aloud with your child, paying attention to stops (periods), pauses (commas), and inflections (question marks). This will help your child pay much closer attention to these symbols in her writing.
  • Take a stack of index cards, and on each card draw all the punctuation symbols your child is learning. Then write down the names of those punctuation marks, one per card. Mix the cards up, turn them face down, and play a version of punctuation go fish!
  • Your child can put her newfound punctuation skills to the test with these essay writing worksheets.
