I noticed in the kids’ writing journals that they weren’t using quotation marks correctly. I wanted to go over how to set up dialogues–the use of quotation marks and commas. I also wanted them to think about all the alternatives to using said or asked… there are dozens and dozens of great words.
My kids love the song and video, What Does the Fox Say? That’s what this dialogue is about at the end (just so you understand!).
Looking for other free grammar pages? You’ll find lots of other pages I’ve made for the kids by clicking on the Language Arts category (You’ll find the categories button on the right side-bar). I’ve made pages on the use of commas, their/they’re/there, apostrophe practice and much more.
If you found this useful, I’d love to hear from you over at our Homeschool Den Facebook Page.

The kids need a bit more practice distinguishing between their, they’re, there and its, it’s. Here is a quick practice page I made for them. I’ll share that in case anyone else could use the review:

I introduced irregular verbs and nouns to the kids last week, but it was clear they could use a bit more practice. Here’s another sheet I made for them. We actually did these last week, but with all the Christmas math posts I never got a chance to share these.
More Irregular Verb and Plural Noun Practice Sheets
Here is the link to the previous worksheets I made on irregular verbs and nouns.

We tend to switch back and forth between our spelling program and our grammar work. This past week we worked on grammar and I made a few more sheets that paralleled the topics that were covered in our Write Source Skills Book (here’s a link to Grade 2 and Grade 4). If you’re interested you can download the worksheets I made for the kids. They cover the use of apostrophes, quotation marks and underlining.
Here are some of the other free language arts related materials I’ve made for the kids:
