Using the Magnetic Punctuation Set

This set can be used for demonstration on any magnetic receptive surface.Introduce the punctuation marks to your students on a gradual basis. Write a series of sentences on the whiteboard and provide a small selection of basic punctuation marks. Invite individual students to walk up to the whiteboard and correctly punctuate the sentence. As learning progresses, introduce a wider range of punctuation marks and increase the complexity of the sentence/passage. Also, model sentences that are incorrectly punctuated and have students rearrange to read properly.

Care Instructions

Should any dry or wet-erase marker pen be used on the magnetic pieces, be sure to erase with a damp cloth. Do not saturate the magnet. Too much water will damage the product. Do not bend the magnets as this will decrease their magnetism.
