This is a super fun, hands on activity for students to practice using correct punctuation when using quotation marks! My students loved this. This can also extend into a 2 day activity in replacing "said" with more exciting words!
I printed out pages 2-4 on colored paper. I made enough for each of my students to have their own. Then, I laminated each sheet and hole punched it in the top corner. I then used a loose leaf ring to attach all the sheets together in order. I gave each table of students a small container of macaroni. They used this macaroni to put quotation marks where they belonged in each sentence. They loved this activity!!! I then had them complete the final page with their answers so that I could go back and check their answers, and so they could get in the habit of writing the sentences correctly. You could also have your students work in partners or even do this as a center!
