Yes, it’s that time of year again. It’s National Punctuation Day. My classes and I are celebrating with chocolate and punctuation pattern sheets, but if you’re looking for something a little more exciting, check out the National Punctuation Day Web site. You’ll find teaching resources, punctuation guides, tips for celebrating National Punctuation Day, and much more.
You’ll even find a recipe for National Punctuation Day meatloaf. As someone who teaches punctuation as a rhetorical endeavor, I find it odd that they shape the meatloaf in the form of a question mark. It sort of implies “middle school cafeteria mystery meat,” but it’s still cute.
Are you celebrating? If so, tell us about it.
There’s a lot of punctuating to do today. Enjoy!
