Teach your kids the basics of punctuation. Ask them to name the punctuation marks they know and review a worksheet together. Start with the full stop, question mark and exclamation mark. Show them examples and explain the differences between a comma and semi colon. Teaching proper use of punctuation marks is key to their development.
Encourage kids to check sentences in the worksheet for proper spacing. Explain that clear, orderly writing needs spaces between words, otherwise words can become jumbled and hard to understand. Show them how to identify correctly spaced sentences.
