Do you know why punctuation is so important? Let me show you an example, it might help you answer this question. Are you ready?
1) "Let's eat Mom."
You are saying you want to eat your Mom in this sentence.
2) "Let's eat, Mom."
This time you are letting Mom know you want to eat.
Did this help? I don't know about you, but I don't want to eat my mom but I'm always hungry and like to eat. Would you like to know another reason punctuation is so important?
This reason is my favorite. Here's the deal, when you read aloud, you get to take a breath each time you come to a punctuation mark. As a teacher, and author, I read a lot of books out loud to kids and adults. If you forget to include your commas, periods, and question marks, then your teacher's face will turn blue and she'll run out of breath. You don't want your teacher to turn into a Smurf, so make sure you use punctuation,
