So I was pretty excited to see this book that makes punctuation a lot more interesting. And funny, too!
About the Book: Semicolons, Cupcakes, and Cucumbers
If you’re looking for a fun book that introduces punctuation but is also funny, entertaining, and brings the punctuation to life, then you have found the right book.
Each mark has its own personality (my favorite is Question Mark) which is great.
But the best part is that each character only speaks in sentences using its own punctuation. Exclamation points sentences always end with an exclamation point! Question mark always asks questions. And so on.
And at the end, they review the rules of each punctuation with some more funny examples.
Using the Punctuation Booklet
My kids devoured the book so I figured there was an opening for learning some punctuation. And how right I was. They were so excited to see the characters again that they didn’t even care that they were learning.
This small book features each of the punctuation from the book with an example sentence and description of when to use them. I thought it would be a great reminder when they were writing
If you’ve never made a small book before, follow the directions from 3 Dinosaurs!
Using the Punctuation Posters
The posters were meant to be larger reminders and fun decorations. We’re trying to add more color to our walls!
The posters have a lot of the same information as the small book. They have examples and descriptions of each. I wanted to make them as similar as possible – repetition is powerful!
