One struggle that my students have is punctuation. Many of them just put a period and call it good. Today I did a lesson focusing on just the question mark. First, we found all of the words on our word wall that we knew were question words. Next, I recorded all of the question words we could think of on a big poster that I had cut out in the shape of a question mark while the students recorded their words on a question mark on their paper. (I wrote the words on the poster with the first letter capitalized to stress the fact that if a sentence begins with that word it will end with a question mark.) During this whole time, I had the kids spell the question words they were giving me and use it in a sentence. As a follow up, students independently completed a practice sheet (that is attached below). The majority of students seemed to grasp the concept very well... now we'll see how they apply it in their writing!
