A grammar/puctuation challenge for you. FREE online

I typed in "puctuation excercises" to find some more free homeschooling material. This is the first thing that popped up and I have to admit, they're good excercises. They even include pleonasm excercises. Of course, the mom had to look that up, but now I know what it means. And so will you now. Go here to practice them yourself, you'll be glad you did. They are from the University of Bristol, yeah, in England. Each of the kids will be going to England for a little grammar/punctuation challange this week and it will all be free. You could look up Bristol England on a map and it could be a geography lesson too! It'll only cost you a minute or two. Off to the university!

ple·o·nasm [ pl ə nàzzəm ] (plural ple·o·nasms)

1. use of superfluous words: the use of more words than are necessary to express a meaning
2. example of using superfluous words: an example of using more words than are necessary to express a meaning, e.g. "free gift" or "sufficient enough"
