Punctuation is a core skill for children at all learning levels. Building great punctuation habits and skills at an early age will help them significantly improve their written self-expression. This section of our website provides you with grade-based pages that explain all about the punctuation standards and usage expected of children at different grade levels, and how you can help your child attain them. Get started by flipping through the graded tabs above!
We run through Grades 1-6, identifying the key focuses of punctuation at each level, from recognising different punctuation, to sophisticated usage. Practice tips are included to provide practical ways that you can help your child improve their punctuation.
Our online program, nightzookeeper.com, has many aspects that can help a child improve their punctuation through fun and engaging gamified challenges and lessons. The program is adjustable to graded levels of difficulty to personalise your child's learning journey, and lessons can be assigned to keep your child focused where you have specific learning goals for them.
