Ka-pow! Bam! Hiyaaa! Correct punctuation gives writing unbelievable power. Your kids can join teacher Chris Brennan as they learn to chop through run-on sentences with periods, break up boring paragraphs with exclamation marks, eye enemies with question marks, and make their next move with commas. Punctuation really can be this fun!
