National Punctuation Day

Today is a day that should be dear to every writer’s heart. Punctuation gives writers the power to guide the reader to the intent of the writing. Correct punctuation could save someone’s life. For example, grandpa would surely be at risk if you wrote “let’s eat grandpa” rather than “let’s eat, grandpa.” Perhaps the most misused punctuation mark is the apostrophe, but commas might come in a close second. This site, dedicated to the yearly celebration of punctuation, has information about each form of punctuation, examples of BIG mistakes, and ways you can celebrate. Perhaps you can think of an appropriate way to honor the all-important punctuation mark in your classroom.
