Kung Fu Punctuation

based on Ros Wilsons work


Prcis from Write on Target
Refer to the punctuation pyramid and make sure children
know what they should be using at their level.
Teach the children the physical actions for the signs.
Read out first sentence. (there is a list in the book, but
the sentences in here are made up and you can add more.)
Give children 10 secs to work out punctuation then ask
children for first punctuation (action + HUH!) etc.

The PowerPoint will put in the punctuation as you click so


you can see what their action would produce.
Signs needing 2 actions e.g. ? need HUH! HUH! as they
do the two actions.
