Punctuation and its Importance

When you speak, you use pauses and tones to convey meaning to your listeners. But writing cannot convey the same. That’s why we use punctuation marks.

Punctuation is a commonly accepted group of signs and symbols that divide words into meaningful groups and help them make sense to a reader. Punctuation is used to separate words in to phrases, clauses and sentences in order to clarify their meaning. They are signals to readers and can be used to convey a variety of meanings.

Children need to understand that the sentences they write will be read by someone and readers must be able to make sense of them. A piece of writing without any punctuation marks would be confusing and difficult to read or understand. A child who knows when and where to use the fourteen punctuation marks of English grammar is already on his way to becoming a good writer. These include the period, question mark, exclamation mark, colon, semicolon, comma, apostrophe, dash, braces, hyphen, brackets, parentheses, ellipses and quotation marks. Three of these – the period, the question mark and the exclamation mark – can be used to end sentences.
