Use Magnetic Punctuation

The inspiration for this lesson came from a Punctuation Magnet Set purchased by Barb Needler (Sweetser Elementary, Sweetser, IN). She utilized the oversized magnets to have students fill in missing punctuation and fix other editing errors when writing sentences on the board.

Use Magnetic Punctuation for Conventions Practice

Then Barb thought, "Wouldn't it be great if we had a set of these for each student?" So she used the school's die-cutting machine to make some of the marks and hand drew the others. In the end, each child received a baggy full of their own punctuation marks to use when practicing conventions.
