    Welcome to the board, tutorsusan.

    The idea is that you make your own effort first.

    We then confirm or comment.

    This sounds like a homework question.

    Unhappy Re: How do I punctuate this sentence?

    No,this is not homework. This is an actual question. This is a sentence in a creative story by one of my LD students. I would have rewritten the sentence as two sentences. I suggested my student rethink what he was trying to say for our next session. He returned with two sentences instead of the one and without my coaching him.
    I am still curious to see if this can be punctuated as one sentence.
