2nd grade is ignoring the period of a sentence

Hi,
This second grader that I have is ignoring the period at the end of a sentence. She doesn't stop before reading the next sentence. What can I do?

Jean

Look up the writing revolution. It's just a paperback book, so it's likely not very expensive and I bet you can find a lot free online too. They have sentence level activities that have been super helpful for my students. Likely, your student isn't "forgetting" the period- she doesn't actually understand what a sentence is and where to put it. TWR can help with that.

The period

I worked with a teacher that made a game of recognizing the end punctuation. When the student saw a period they made a beep sound and there was a hand motion which slips my memory right now. There was a different sound and motion for the question mark and exclamation point.

At the end of the day while waiting for the busses to be called someone would volunteer to read and acknowledge the end punctuation correctly. The teacher and the students both kept track of how many times the person read correctly. A student would volunteer how many times the student read correctly. If the teacher had the same answer the students won a point. If the student read 100% correctly they earned an extra point.

When the students had earned 20 points they got to play a game or go out for an extra 10 minute recess. The students loved it and the teacher claimed it worked.

Just keep telling her that a period means she’s to stop, pause then continue. It’ll effect her comprehension so you may have her check her comprehension at the end of a paragraph or a few sentences.
