Punctuation Power

🔓 This is an unlocked sample! Byrdseed.TV is open for new memberships through January 27th, 2023. Join today!


Punctuation is powerful! Students will create new meanings from sentences just by changing the punctuation.


  1. Students find multiple meanings by adding punctuation to this set of words: your teacher said my dad is a rockstar
  2. Given five options, students choose at least three and try to find at least two meanings for each by adding punctuation.
  3. Finally, students try to create their own set of words that can be re-punctuated OR they can create a tiny story which they can add punctuation to.

The registration window closes on January 27th, 2023
