Explain to your students that they will be acting as diligent post office workers, tasked with reading and fixing the punctuation errors in a series of letters.
Provide each student with a pile of 24 cut-up letters. Instruct them to choose any letter from the pile to read and rewrite on their worksheet, ensuring that they correct any punctuation errors they come across.
Encourage students to pay close attention to capitalisation, sentence structure, and appropriate punctuation marks such as periods, commas, and question marks.
For instance, if a letter states, "i want To eat my apple when is it Lunch," students should rewrite it as "I want to eat my apple. When is it lunch?"
