Hello! It’s May already!

I’m finding it hard to keep up this year – the days seem to be flying by at a vast rate of knots and my head is spinning with that velocity. Can it really be May? I’d better put my skates on and work hard, or it’ll be Christmas before we know it 🙂

It’s been an interesting week – as always – with questions about apostrophes, spelling, grammar and parts of speech, and the more I investigate the more fun I have. Watch this week’s quick video to see what I’ve uncovered for you about the word “embiggen”:

Update on my book of apostrophes and grammar for kids!

My little book about apostrophes and parts of speech has been chugging along in the background – it’s aimed at children and written as rhymes, with a hope that it will make it fun to read AND to learn. I’m doing my own sketches for the book, and that’s taking the longest time – I can’t wait until it’s all done and I can let you know it’s finished! Here are some of the doodles I’ve been doing of animals I might use >> book on grammar for kids - sketch of animals by Teena book on grammar for kids - sketch of animals by Teena
