National Punctuation Day?

24 Sep

Did you know there is actually a National Punctuation Day?  In the spirit of the day, we did an impromptu review of punctuation marks.  I found out that my kids knew most of the rules for punctuation, but I was surprised that they didn’t know the name for an ellipsis.

Of course, we had to watch some classic Victor Borge and his phonetic punctuation:

Here is a fun site for punctuation resources:

    Oh, that video is hilarious! I didn’t know there was such a thing as punctuation day. =)
    Just popped over from the Hip Homeschool Hop and have been enjoying browsing back through your posts. =)

  2. LOL! I popped over from the Hip Homeschool Hop and LOVED this video. As a member of the baby boomer generation (who homeschooled kids and is now helping with homeschooling activities for grandparents and their grandchildren), I grew up with Dean Martin and Victor Borge but this was definitely a new one for me and quite hilarious! I’ll have to remember to share that with the grandkids when they get a bit older. 🙂

    Thanks, too, for the link for punctuation resources. I’ll definitely check it out as well 🙂
