What to do with this activity?

"Punctuation" is what we call the marks - like full stops, commas, and question marks - used to separate words and sentences. Punctuation helps make the meaning clear. Understanding how to use simple punctuation is an important part of learning to write.  

Play a punctuation game with the Comma Chameleon to get in some enjoyable practice. 


  • Why am I doing this?

    Learning to write should be fun. It’s important that children know that writing is a fun and useful. By fitting it into everyday activities, like drawing, writing notes and birthday cards children will get used to holding a pencil and learning to write properly.

  • How can I do more?

    Encourage your child to write and draw  - on outdoor walls with chalk or in the sand at the beach. Give them picture mazes or puzzles to fill out – join the dot puzzles are great for their hand eye coordination.
