teaching punctuation can be
fun with Punctuate Plus.
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.

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."
