I wished I'd known beforehand and I'd have worked it into my lesson plans! Maybe I still will. Hmmm...third graders love that kind of thing. lol

I think my personal favorite punctuation mark is obvious.

I hadn't heard of this.

I'll share a teacher story from a lady who was sitting next to me at a cafe on Sunday. The assignment was for the students to correctly identify periods, exclamation points, and question marks. Then they were supposed to use a sentence with each. One kid wrote this:

Why do we have to go to school?
It is so boring.
Man, this is so stupid!

He received 100% :)

I would have given him a 100%, too. That's pretty durn creative! And I would have laughed with him about it the next day. But I'm that kind of teacher...I'm weird. lol
