Punctuation Rules Worksheets

Related ELA Standard: L.4.3.B

Core Standard

There are fourteen punctuation marks in the English language. The last academic paper on saw on their use cited just about fifty rules which applied to these fourteen marks. The rules focus on the use of end punctuation, apostrophes, commas, colons, hyphens, italics, quotation marks, semicolons, abbreviations, and even numbers. I have always found that punctuation rules are very relative to where you attended elementary school. You will find as you get older and begin to work with others as to how to task some people take punctuation rules versus others. These worksheets will help students explore the most commonly used forms of punctuation and review the major rules associated with them.
