Punctuation Song, The
From Plank Road Publishingby John Riggio
This cross curricular song is a fun way to learn some commonly used marks in punctuation. The style is rock, the lyrics have some challenging rhythms, and the tempo demands enunciation, so this tune should keep your students on their toes!
Here's a fun idea: Have your students "draw" each symbol in the air as they sing it. This will add action and it will reinforce the learning, too. Given the tempo, if they master this, they'll have something to be proud of. Don't forget September 24th is National Punctuation Day®! (from Music K-8, Vol. 26, No. 1)
