Imagine a world where punctuation had no meaning served no purpose or was excluded from our everyday lives it would make for a bunch of run ons and jumbled sentences like this one right(?). Terrible writing aside, the sentences above would is a great way to demonstrate exactly how important punctuation is. Punctuation is in every aspect of our lives, conversations, social media posts, text messages, homework, essays, and literature. It plays a very important role in the how/what we are trying to communicate and can alter the message being sent. In this workshop, children will be engaged in a fun way to learn about punctuation use; and how it could affect the tone of their message. Students will then take these punctuation skills to stage for a fun day of drama, laughs, and writing!
This workshop is intended for ages 9-12.
