Wow...the Grammar Bible for Sister Scholastica from my grades 3-5 (yes, I had her for three years). She was the diagramming Nazi...yet, I have to thank her today! I learned well.
I am fluent in my math facts and could even now, 50+ years later, diagram any sentence or geometric figure, thanks to her.

Thanks, friend. This is awesome! Brings back my childhood! Dang, I bet I am the only person I know who thinks this is neat! And I thought I was a math nerd! By the way, the language/grammar wars have nothing on the math wars of the past two decades!

Thanks, Hal. I hope you are not implying that I am an "inveterate fusspot".

Maryann, was that really her name? Great name for a teacher!

And 12 Hail Mary's for calling a nun a Nazi!

I myself never could get the whole structure thing down. I still have to do the "Schoolhouse Rock" songs when trying to figure out parts of a sentence! LOL.

That was her name, Cory. I was a first grader in 1967 the legends of Sr. Scholastica were alive and well.
