National Punctuation Day!

Thanks to Jen for the link to National Punctuation Day!

 

From the press release:

 

Why is punctuation important Jeff Rubin the Punctuation Man and founder of National Punctuation Day explains that without punctuation you would not be able to express your feelings in writing not to mention know when to pause or stop or ask a question or yell at someone and without punctuation you would not be able to separate independent clauses and show an example of how a business lost millions because of an errant comma so dont forget the most important punctuation mark $$$$$$ OK so a dollar signs isnt a punctuation mark but its important dont you agree

 

I think I am going to change my plans for tomorrow and have some fun with punctuation!  I plan on printing (part of) the press release for our do-now and asking the students to add some of the missing punctuation. And I imagine showing some of the incorrectly punctuated signs could start some great conversations.
