Product Description
This packet focuses on teaching middle and elementary school students how to properly punctuate a single sentence of dialogue using four different sentence patterns - Dialogue Last, Dialogue First, Dialogue Interrupted, and Implied Speaker Dialogue. Dialogue punctuating is a tough skill for students to learn and requires much practice because the punctuation is so complex and varied.

This packet keeps it simple so the students can focus on learning the punctuation without being sidetracked with more creative descriptive sentence writing which can be taught in other lessons. All the forms in this packet are in PDF format and ready for printing.

Packet includes:
 Lesson and Use Suggestions
 "Patterns of Dialogue Punctuation" Handout
 Two Student Worksheets
 Answer Sheets for the worksheets
 Study Cards (can be printed and laminated for students to keep for reference)
 4 Patterns of Dialogue Punctuation Posters
