    punctuation

    Each morning when the children arrive, have one or two sentences written on the board with no punctuation and/or errors. Let them correct them, on writing paper or in their journals. Example:
    tomorrow november 28 is thanksgiving day the pilgrims invited the indians to a feast the pilgrims said please come of our feast
    The children have to capitalize several words, add commas, know where to put periods, and quotation marks in this example. You can adapt your sentences to fit whatever skill you are teaching. I was trying to stress the quotation marks here. They seem to like this and can do it while you are taking the roll, etc.
