Punctuation marks are one of the issues that students cannot acquire correctly even if they have had a well-designed education. The studies in this field show that teaching techniques should be more significant than the students’ grade or topics. Accordingly, the current study aims to investigate the effect of the poetry method on the elementary school students’ skill of proper use of punctuation marks. The study conducts a mixed method research design via pre/post-test experimental design with a control group. The data is collected through a semi-structured interview in three weeks. As a result, it was found that the mean success of the control group was decreased, however the mean success rate of the experimental group increased significantly. The important effect is calculated on hyphen, exclamation mark and question mark and a moderate effect was seen on the use of full stop, comma, semi colon, apostrophe, ellipsis marks and dash.
