The Alan Peat Pocket Punctuation App.

The Alan Peat Pocket Punctuation App is the definitive guide to punctuation. It includes precise definitions of each punctuation mark and fun-to-learn activities for class or home use.
The definitions can easily be shown on interactive whiteboards or devices being used by pupils/adults. The engaging 'Teaching Activities' can be accessed with a single click.

Alan's last app, 'The Alan Peat Pocket App of Exciting Sentences' went to Number One in the UK Education Charts for both iPad and iPhone - feedback indicated that the interactive nature of the app was a key feature you liked. We have included the same interactive elements in this app: note- taking and lesson planning features for each punctuation mark! Notes and lesson plans can even be saved 'in app'.

Additionally we have linked the note taking / lesson planning section with Dropbox and email so that lesson plans and notes can be shared among staff. This collaborative planning feature was a key aspect of the app's design.

We have also included a 'Punctuation face' which uses associative hooks to help pupils remember each punctuation face. Just click on the relevant part of the face and the punctuation definition appears. Tap on the eyes and the exclamation mark definition appears; tap on the cheek and the colon definition appears etc.

With a huge amount of content and a plethora of teaching ideas, we hope you'll make this your 'go-to' app for punctuation.

This app is fantastic for teachers. As an NQT there is a lot of jargon out there to remember in your first year of teaching! I was really worried that I wouldn't be able to remember all of the vocabulary and definitions that you are required to teach, but with this app at my fingertips, I am much more confident that I am doing the job properly. There are even suggestions for teaching strategies. :)

Another useful app from Alan Peat. Very clear teaching strategies and activities provided to help children understand and develop their use of punctuation. Alan's ‘Keep it simple; make it stick’ approach will once again help children learn how to use a variety of punctuation correctly.
Great to be able to upload personal notes to dropbox.
Also LOVE the punctuation poster :-)

Must Have App #2

Read the info to see what's in the app - suffice to say if it's got Alan Peat's name on it it's worth every penny & more. Practical ideas & useful references for people that need reminding about colons & semi-colons (me.) All of his apps are available as books too.
