Descriptosaurus Punctuation in Action Year 3: Ruby Red



You've heard of Little Red Riding Hood - now meet her cousin, Ruby Red, who makes the same journey through the forest to visit her granny. However, Ruby Red's story takes a strange turn when she also meets a wolf in the forest. In grave danger, lost in the dark forest and sick from eating poisonous berries, Ruby learns the importance of listening to her parents, keeping her promises and not judging everyone by the actions of one member of a group.

Join Ruby on her journey as she writes the story of her meeting with the wolf and as she learns with the assistance of the wolf and Punctua, the Fairy Godmother of Writing, to punctuate properly and become a bestselling author.

Descriptosaurus Punctuation in Action Year 3: Ruby Red is part of a short series of age-specific, beautifully illustrated stories that can be read for pleasure and/or used as a contextualised resource, containing a step-by-step guide to teaching punctuation. The characters from each story are used to demonstrate a range of punctuation rules in a fun and engaging way appropriate to the book's age group. Areas covered include:

  • formulating punctuation rules.
  • the use of misconceptions to highlight common errors.
  • teaching tips to provide a punctuation model.

The book explores the impact of punctuation on reading, understanding, meaning and effect, and can be used as a basis for pupils' own punctuation or included in their 'Writer's Toolkit.' These new Descriptosaurus stories are an indispensable teaching aid for making punctuation fun for all primary teachers and literacy coordinators.
