Reading Center: Penguin Theme: Capital Letters, Punctuation, and Complete Sentences

Using Georges Seurat's painting "Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte," this lesson launches into a discussion of punctuation.

Learners then rotate through centers in which they work on activities related to capitalization, punctuation, and complete sentences.
