The long dusty winding road stretched far ahead. Commas help to break up lists, lists, lists and lists. Commas also help to break up long, descriptive, flowery, wordy sentences. With your right arm bent so that your hand is in front of your face, Make the noise, 'Shi!' make a short twisting motion at the wrist to signify the comma shape. A full stop comes at the end
of most sentences Logan went shopping with his mum Benjamin bought a baguette Throw a short, right-handed punch in the air in front of you. Make the noise, 'Ha!' Now practise: . Ha! . .

WILF: Neatest handwriting. Capital letters: at the beginning of sentences for names of places for names of people. Consolidation A proper bout of Punctuation Kung-Fu requires three players:
two combatants and a referee. The combatants face each other. The referee says the words "capital letter" and the opponents bow to each other saying the same phrase. The referee then calls out three punctuation marks and the players have to put the moves and sounds for these together, in sequence, as quickly as they can. The winner is the one who puts together all three moves and their accompanying sounds in the quickest time. Good luck!

My favourite subjects are reading, writing and arithmetic. Down in the valley there were three farms. The owners of these farms had done well. They were rich men. They were also nasty men. All three of them were about as nasty and mean as any men you could meet. Their names were Farmer Boggis, Farmer Bunce and Farmer Bean. down in the valley there were three farms the owners of these farms had done well they were rich men they were also nasty men all three of them were about as nasty and mean as any men you could meet their names were farmer boggis farmer bunce and farmer bean - Fantastic Mr Fox
