CLASS: Primary four
TOPIC: PUNCTUATION MARKS (comma, question mark and full stop).

   COMMA (,)

The comma is an internal punctuation mark. It is used in the following ways:
➡️To separate items in a series:
Democracy is the government of the people, by the people, and for the people.
Adeola brought a pencil, a ruler, an eraser, and a pen to the examination hall.
➡️To separate two adjectives before a Noun:
Our English teacher is a tall, beautiful woman.
Our classroom is a big, clean classroom.

➡️Before ‘and’ ‘but’ ‘yet’ ‘nor’, when they join two sentences together:
He is poor, but kind.
Read your book everyday, and you will surely pass.

A question mark is a punctuation mark used at the end of a sentence to show that it is a question.

  1. Where are you going?
  2. Who did you see?
  3. When are you going home?
  4. Have you done your homework? FULL STOP (.)
    A full stop is a punctuation mark used at the end of a statement that is not a question or an exclamation. The full stop asks the reader to pause for a longer while, than a comma.
  5. I am a boy
  6. She has written many poems
  7. She loves cooking

Punctuate the sentences below, using full stop, comma and question.

Ayo is a town boy He lives in a big beautiful and colourful house
