Punctuation Challenge

By Sharon Fabian
1     Punctuation helps a reader make sense of every story, article, or letter that he reads. Without punctuation marks, the words would seem crammed together. Try to read a paragraph as if it had no punctuation. You won't even have time to take a breath.
 
2     When the writer adds punctuation, the reader knows where to pause, and the words flow more smoothly - like when you're talking to a friend, only more organized!
 
3     
Challenge #1
 
4     Read the following information about punctuation. Underline or highlight each punctuation mark as you read about it.
 
5     There are three kinds of punctuation that signal the end of a sentence. All three tell the reader to pause, but each one has a specific meaning too.
 
6     The period at the end of this sentence is one kind of end punctuation.
 
7     Sometimes a period just doesn't do the job. You wouldn't put a period at the end of the next sentence. Would you? Why do you use a different end mark here?
 
8     If you said, "Because it's a question," you're right! Exclamation point!
 
9     Did you see the three end punctuation marks - period, question mark, and exclamation point? Each one was used to end a particular type of sentence.
