Punctuation Marks
Song for Teaching about Punctuation
Music with Mar

This song is available on Music with Mar.'s Jazz Up Your Language Arts  

Sung like a Gilbert and Sullivan operetta. Have children sing the repeats. Be dramatic. This will also get children to enjoy light opera!

I have a friend, Punctuation Mark.
That’s right.
I’m Punctuation Mark.

He’s used with letters and has no sound.
That’s right. I’m Punctuation Mark.
That’s right. He's Punctuation Mark.

I can be a dot and nothing more.
To end a sentence, put a dot.
It’s called a period,
a punctuation mark that’s just a spot.
a punctuation mark that’s just a spot.

If you have a question to ask,
there’s something you want to know,
Draw a question mark,
a squiggly line with a dot below.
A question mark's a squiggly line
With a dot below!

Now there are other marks,
some other forms he’ll take
There are commas,
colons and apostrophes to make

There are dashes, hyphens and parentheses,
semicolons, too
Let’s sing about sentence enders with you.

For something really big,
I mean, like a sensation,
Draw a line with a dot underneath.
That’s an exclamation!

My name is Punctuation Mark.
That’s right. He’s Punctuation Mark.
Use me whenever you need me.
Use a Punctuation Mark.
