Printable Cut and Graph Punctuation Strips. (Click here to download and print.)
Large paper (Just cut off a piece from a roll of paper)
Set up your punctuation game
Download and print your sentence strips. They’ll print on two pages of paper.
Cut apart each sentence strip.
Next, set up your graph. Use a piece of large paper to draw three columns. You’ll want one column for periods (.), one column for question marks (?), and one column for exclamation marks (!).
It’s time to play
This punctuation game is easy. Each strip has a sentence on it that is missing its end punctuation.
Choose a sentence strip, determine the correct end punctuation, and glue the strip in the correct column.
It couldn’t be easier (or more fun)!
Try one of these fun variations
Don’t have any large paper? Take three sheets of printer paper, one for each end punctuation mark. Glue your strip onto the correct sheet of paper.
Or, you can make an impromptu graph anywhere. Make a graph on the floor with painters tape or on a table. You don’t have to glue the strips down, just lay them in the correct column.
Play with a large group of kids. Hand each kid a strip and have them stand in groups for each punctuation mark.
