Stop! Cease and desist!
Well, sort of.
In stopping pupils and making them reflect, we offer them the opportunity to include more and discard any bad habits. Today, this focuses on punctuation - it's basic but a useful poster or mat to have laminated to remind pupils, at the end of extended writing, to prompt checking and proof-reading. It can be extended to get pupils to give examples of the pictured punctuation before starting writing - in essence, showing you they can before then proving they can (perhaps a stop towards lazy writing!).
I should have another mat on capital letters coming soon, but until then...
