Punctuation is important
Punctuation Playtime® founders Jeff Rubin and Norma Martínez-Rubin believe that reaching children at the beginning of their scholastic careers is critical in helping them develop the reading and written communication skills that will be a key not only to their academic success, but to their professional success as adults.
Punctuation Playtime®, a 45-minute program for children in grades 1-6, takes a subject that children might roll their eyes at and makes it an engaging and enjoyable learning experience.
Jeff and Norma involve the children in a participatory, theater-like experience. The program encourages teamwork and involvement while teaching proper punctuation. They do this with fun activities such as:
Jeff, founder of National Punctuation Day®, and his wife, Norma, are passionate about providing children with tools that will enhance their literacy.
They provide fun, educational take-home activities that the children can do with their family and friends. For example, each student receives an activity book featuring punctuation mark examples and definitions; punctuation mazes, puzzles, contests, and matching games; and colorful punctuation quizzes.
Teachers receive teaching tools and classroom aids, including a dozen punctuation-related activities to use throughout the year, and a set of four, 4-color punctuation posters for the classroom.
Learning is easiest when people laugh and have FUN! The children will remember this program — and the lessons they learned — for a lifetime!
Punctuation Playtime® is offered in both English and Spanish.
