Another idea from Debbie Diller

Another idea that Debbie Diller shared was this one about punctuation and how to help children understand what the various marks mean. I really liked this stop light version because my children can visualize the punctuation mark and then remember the color associated with it.

I tried this idea out today so that I could link the idea of finding commas in our big books with using commas in writing. I also like that it is a ready made anchor chart that the children can refer back to many times in the year. Now I just need more wall space to hang them all up! ๐Ÿ™‚
