Formerly titled Mastering Punctuation Primary Elementary.
Mastering Punctuation covers all punctuation and capitalization rules typically presented to lower elementary students, grades 1 through 3. It will be most helpful for advanced 2nd graders and average 3rd graders. It utilizes an instructional method that is proven effective in a variety of subjects and lesson-plan formats. This method begins with massing (focusing) practice on a new concept when it is first introduced. The method continues by distributing (spacing) the practice of the concept throughout future lessons. Additional concepts are added incrementally and meaningful learning is promoted.
In Mastering Punctuation, concepts are introduced, practiced, and revisited in a variety of short daily drills that are quickly completed. Mastering Punctuation is designed to be completed in 12-14 weeks. Review sections are spaced throughout the text to help you determine how well your children are remembering what has been presented. Practical writing assignments progressively take your student's understanding to the next level: application. This goal, the consistent application of punctuation rules in every day writing, is really what we are after. The end result is writing that is clearly expressed and understandable to the reader.
