In Reader's Workshop the students learned about the parts of a sentence.
As a group we used big books to find capitals, sight words, spaces, and punctuation.
Then I sent the students off on a punctuation hunt.
Before they could add it to our punctuation board they had to tell me the correct name... and when it was used.
They loved this lesson and I am thrilled that they are already using "official" reading and writing terms. : )
