Whenever my children have completed some written work, I always tell them to check it for S.P.U.N.C. before passing it in.
What's S.P.U.N.C? It stands for Spelling, Punctuation, Use of words, Neatness, and Capitalization.
I suggest the kids do a "finger read" as they double check for each part of S.P.U.N.C, that really helps them figure out if they left out a word or wrote something that usually makes sense.
Sometimes I'll remind the kids to make their work S.P.U.N.C.Y.
What does the Y stand for? Your very best work!
