Never mind the spud's, heres the hot potatatoes -

teaching punctuation can be fun with Punctuate Plus.

Punctuate Plus offers many benefits over traditional methods:

Trying to teach punctuation skills with paper-based exercises can be so dull - it must be a trial, both for teachers and pupils.

'Punctuate Plus' lets you demonstrate punctuation in an entertaining manner, especially when used with an interactive whiteboard.
In the practice situation, the programs will highly motivate students to decide upon the best punctuation marks, whilst the help texts and text-speech system are a boon to dyslexic pupils who will be guided into making the correct choices. Examples of punctuation, simple and detailed, are available to the student at all times. Additionally, you'll be able to use this program for all ages, making the most of a single resource.

It's easy to add your own new sentences to use within the program, and the speed tests promote skim-reading skills.

Whenever we have been demonstrating our programs, we always like to keep this one for last. Without fail, there is a certain amount of elbow-nudging amongst teachers, with mutterings of, "We could do with this one for ourselves."

"Using the title was a very effective way to achieve the teaching and learning objectives, as it was highly motivating and provided the children with instant responses. It enabled me to explore or explain aspects of punctuation more effectively as it inspired the children to be interested in the subject. It also gave them the all-important instant feedback and a reason to try."
