Punctuation Posies


April 8, 2010

Meara is practicing with punctuation. We found this idea on The Mailbox Magazine website and thought it would be fun. We filled our flower pots with dried beans to help the sticks stand up easier.

Color one side of jumbo craft sticks green and attach a flower, we used foam stickers and cut only the size of the stick out of the sticker backing. On the other side write your sentences (exclamatory, question, and statement) leaving off the puctuation marks. Label your pots with punctuation marks, we used post it notes. Have your child read each sentence and place the flower in the correct flower pot.
