Puns and Punctuation

Explore the writing traits of word choice and conventions. Middle school writers use this Six-Traits Writing lesson to discuss the writing style of the Tom Swift Adventure Series by Victor Appleton. They examine "Tom Swiftie" puns, paying special attention to dialogue punctuation. First in groups and then as individuals, they create their own "Tom Swiftie" puns for their writer's notebooks or for a classroom collection.

My students have had many opportunities to extend their learning by engaging in extra practice activities that I found through Lesson Planet. It's much easier to differentiate instruction because I can pull together various levels of the same skill. Thanks for making my life a little less hectic.
