Submitted by: Teacher

Grade Level: Elementary School

Competency: At Level

My students are reasonably good with their reading and writing skills, however the use of punctuation is terrible and sometimes non-existent…. A couple of the students are writing below their grade level, and don’t seem to be improving at all…(grades3,4)
