Do you know your punctuation and symbols?


Have you ever wondered why we use a question mark or an exclamation point? Or both?!

Punctuation helps readers understand what you are trying to say when you write, and without it, some pretty silly things can happen.

For example, without commas, the sentence:

"Jamie likes cooking, her family, and her dog."

would turn into

"Jamie likes cooking her family and her dog."

Which would be bad news for her family and dog! How much do you know about punctuation? Let’s find out!
