Wordsmiths, unite! March 4 is National Grammar Day!
This holiday was established in 2008 by writer and editor Martha Brockenbrough, author of Things That Make Us [Sic].
(Isn’t that the cutest title ever?)
The National Grammar Day website has all sorts of goodies—free e-cards, free grammar wallpaper, grammar t-shirts, teaching materials, and the nerdiest theme song I have ever heard.
Check it out: www.nationalgrammarday.com/
And if you want to read up on the beauty of grammar, or strengthen your skill, here are some good books:
- The Glamour of Grammar by Roy Peter Clark
- The Perfect English Grammar Workbook by Lisa McLendon
- Grammar Girl’s Quick and Dirty Tips for Better Writing by Mignon Fogarty
Enjoy your day!
