1st Grade Punctuation Typing Practice

Assignment: These narrative writing activities give students plenty of practice using common punctuation. They identify and use the comma, apostrophe, quotation marks, colon, exclamation point, question mark, and period.

Students can use their names and friend's or classmate's names in the stories. Students print their stories when finished. Each writing activity is usually good for one session of computer class. Your mileage may vary.
