March 4th is National Grammar Day. Why? Because you should “March Forth” with good grammar. (Also, because knowing the difference between “fourth” and “forth” is in itself a sign of your attention to grammar.) Designated in 2008, National Grammar Day was established by Martha Brockenbrough, founder of the Society for the Promotion of Good Grammar. Here are some free materials for grammar fun and learning:
- For elementary school students: The Punctuation Rap by Jeff Rubin of National Punctuation Day fame. (PDF)
