Girl, you’ll be a woman soon

Last year, I was teaching the end marks of punctuation. Since I teach middle school, it is a rather sensitive age group. And made a rather serious error when checking for understanding…

Are there any questions about periods?

Thankfully, I didn’t get any questions I couldn’t answer. Tomorrow, it’s the return of the period lesson… I’ll just need to pick my wording a little more carefully.
