Punctuation comics

Children are rewarded in SAT's for the appropriate use of punctuation but it can be difficult to teach the appropriate use for each. Yesterday I was in the grip of writing a piece for my coursework when I couldn't, for love nor money, work  out if my semicolon was in the right place.... I stumbled across a fantastic little site, perfect for years 5 and 6 in the run up to Sat's.

How to pause - The Oatmeal
The Oatmeal use cartoons and comedy to define the appropriate use of punctuation, if it works for me it'll work wonders for our KS2 children! Click here to take a look at their comic strips.

Keep an eye on the printable resources section, I'll upload my punctuation pyramid soon.
