Clothespin Punctuation

I am back to share a grammar teaching strategy.  Clothespins are handy little items to use to help students understand punctuation.

This is extremely useful if you have students that love to move around.  To reproduce this activity, write sentences onto paint sticks.  Do not include the punctuation.  Use a permanent marker to write punctuation marks onto clothespins.  Students then place the punctuation marks in the proper location.

    1. Hi Mary! Thanks so much. May and can are both grammatically correct. Sometimes I sweat at the use of can in some sentences. Most grammar manuals state that can is acceptable today.

  2. Hi, Thanks for sharing the knowledge regarding math and grammatical updates
