"Punctuation playtime completely supports our curriculum content," says Sally Feldman, a teacher at Washington Elementary School, Point Richmond, CA. "You have wrapped up the best in teaching to bring to our students."
Trudi Jensen, a teacher at Ellerhorst Elementary School, Pinole, CA, says, "I liked the introduction, practice and review. Good job. The children wanted to do more. They cheered for punctuation!"
"Punctuation with punch! Hit me again," exclaims Mrs. Peterson, of El Sobrante Elementary School, El Sobrante, CA. "The presenters kept moving and the students participated. What would make this program better would be to come to our school more often."
The Punctuation Playtime DVD was developed from live school assemblies facilitated by Jeff Rubin and his wife, Norma Martinez-Rubin.
