Writing a Pangram

Stephen Poynting. Practice sentences. Manuscript, ca. 1650

Look at the example of a pangram by Stephen Poyning. A pangram is a sentence that uses each letter of the alphabet at least once. Do you know any pangrams? Try writing your own—be sure it makes sense! For an extra challenge, try using one of the words in Poyning's pangram in your own.  Click on the image to see it more clearly.
