Punctuation Celebration
Punctuation Celebration - Elsa Knight Bruno,Jenny Whitehead

This book is good for learning about how to use punctuation and how important it is. The book could be used in my classroom by learning about expressions in reading and how they help us be fluent readers. We could go over sentences and say them in different manners so choose which punctuation is correct. The book would be useful by reading and showing examples of how important punctuation really is. I think this book would fall in the K to 2nd grade area. The Lexile Level is 650L.

Punctuation Celebration
Punctuation Celebration - Elsa Knight Bruno,Jenny Whitehead

This book features many different types of punctuation, a description of each, and an example using the punctuation. I would use this book with mostly younger grades such as first and second grade. The Lexile level of this book is 650L. This would be a great book for introducing punctuation. After reading the book, a teacher could put the students into groups and assign each group a punctuation mark. Each group will present a poster board that states the name of the punctuation mark, job of the punctuation mark, and an example of it. They could reference the book for help. Each person in the group would have a different job to keep the group on task. The jobs could be artist, describer, task manager, referencer, and speaker. After each group has prepared, they could all present during "rug time".

Penny and the Punctuation Bee
Penny and the Punctuation Bee - Moira Rose Donohue,Jenny Law

This is a very interactive text that has children differentiating between punctuation. Each punctuation has their own name and are participating in the spelling bee.  A fun activity for the kids to do would be for the kids to put on a play and be a type of punctuation. This would be a great to read to kids in kindergarten to third grade.

Punctuation Takes a Vacation
Punctuation Takes a Vacation - Robin Pulver,Lynn Rowe Reed

I recently bought this book to go along with my minilesson for Dr. Raulston's class. I am so glad I bought this. It is a very cute book that helps teach punctuation. I would use this book in my 2nd grade classroom to help them understand the importance of using punctuation when they are writing. You could make the postcards that are in the book and have the students get into groups and try to figure out which punctuation is taking a vacation by the description given in the post card. You could also have your students come up with their own sentences using the punctuation listed in the book. The intended audience for this book is grades K-2.

Punctuation Celebration - Elsa Knight Bruno,Jenny Whitehead

This book was highly recommended to me by a few 3rd grade teachers. They use this book to introduce punctuation. This is a third grade reading level book, but you could use this as a whole group read for an introduction to a punctuation lesson. I would have the students retell me the punctuation they remember and share an example with the class.
