Punctuation Celebration


Bibliographic Information: Knight Bruno, E. (2012). Punctuation celebration. New York: Christ Ottaviano.

Brief Annotation: Punctuation becomes fun and visual in this book as different marks become represented in a poetic nature.

Genre: Poetry

Grade Level: K-2

Readers who will like this: Students who enjoy being able to visualize the rules of grammar instead of simply being told what each thing does.

Rating/ Response: 5 – I love the way this book is organized and tells a story while explaining and teaching at the same time.

One question you would ask before a read aloud: What punctuation elements are you all familiar with?

Reading Strategy: Visualization

Rational for strategy: Each of the different punctuation points are demonstrated in a kid-friendly manner. They are easy to understand and the examples are similar to their lives.
