A workbook packed with 50 punctuation activities for use in the classroom.

Use this resource in literacy rotations or grammar and punctuation lessons. Each week ends with a Punctuation Sentence Challenge, which serves as a consolidation task for students to demonstrate their understanding of certain punctuation.
