I'm ready to try the picture idea. I think some of the best teaching that has happened in my classroom all year happened while I was on maternity leave. Our amazing reading teacher did a punctuation unit in writing with our class and I can't believe what they accomplished. One thing she had them do was survey adults around the school about their use of punctuation. The students came up with the questions, surveyed the adults, and presented their findings. It's brilliant! My students have never been so excited about punctuation - or so thoughtful about it.
