MyPoWriYe #145 - '


I'm Emily Apostrophe.

Please introduce me properly.

Include me in contractions.

(That's my cat, Fred.)

Place me in possessives.

(Fred's ball is red.)

Don't stick me in a plural

or in front of every s.

Learn where I live.

Don't just guess.

There are so many fabulous books and websites filled with interesting and funny facts about and misuses of different punctuation marks.   When I am back from vacation and not working from a dollhouse computer, I will share some of these with you.

I am currently considering writing a collection of punctuation poems with characters such as bossy Emily Apostrophe!

  1. Cute Amy! Nolan and Emily should hang out! I wanted to tell you that I was thinking of you while I was getting my room ready. I walked into my classroom bathroom and decided that it needed I hung poetry posters up all over the walls! I am afraid that they will be in there more frequently and for longer amounts of time but it is fun in there!

  2. Amy - I'm a teacher in the Iroquois district, and I checked out your blog after you passed out your card at a workshop in August. I'm enjoying it immensely and looking forward to learning from you this year. You've inspired me to start a blog of my own: - I'd be interested to know what you think. Bill Michalek
