    Two little ideas I read quite a while ago that really started the ball rolling with punctuation; for grade 2 or 3, give the children a highlighter (or 2 different colors) and require that they highlight the capital and period (or question mark) on every sentence before handing in. For Grade 1, I put one of those small dot sized stickers next to each period they use.....suddenly they're using periods!! I start it in October because they really really like Halloween dot stickers.
