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.
Our printables are moving to homeschoolden.com.
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? I’ve made pages on the use of commas, their/they’re/there, apostrophe practice and much more. You’ll find them at homeschoolden.com (our new home!)
- I made a new set of comma rules and practice sheets for the kids that go over these same rules.
