While National Grammar Day is observed in the United States on March 4, today was Grammar Day at L-Dub, and all of our girls were into it! Many dreamed up and wore grammar costumes – you know, visual representations of grammar rules, puns, phonetic mix-ups such as spoonerisms, obscure words and meanings, clever rhetorical excursions, oddly formed sentences, double entendres, and such. Maya B ’19 was Night Knight, wearing a shining armor festooned with stars; Ella H ’19 was covered with sponges and luffas as she was Self Absorbed today; Truly ’18 was Iced-T, a T covered with snowflakes; Destiny ’17 had a pillow under her shirt and was Destiny’s Child…the list goes on.
Sister groups were in four teams – Punctuation Nation, Flawless Clauses, Grammar Slammers, and Sentence Menace – and traveled around the school to participate in Grammar Poster Study and Grammar Games; to watch and learn from 8th grade produced and directed Grammar Dos/Don’ts films; to read and distill the secrets hidden in Grammar Comics; and finally, to rock a Spelling Bee.

There was so much spirit and hard work put into Grammar Day this year! Thank you Ms. Eva and all of our students for making it so fun!
