Product Description
Students are encouraged to use dialogue to make their characters come alive and to help their readers connect to their writing. Unfortunately, many students are not aware how to correctly punctuate their quotations.

I used this activity as an assessment after a weeklong unit on quotations. This activity gives students examples of the types of punctuation that is used depending on where the speakers name is given in the sentence. Students are given 12 quotations. They are first asked to sort the sentences depending on where the speaker's name is used (beginning, end, or middle of quotation). Next, students are asked to correctly punctuate the sentences. Finally, students have to write one of their own quotations in each category.

This activity correlates with the Common Core Standards. It works well with third grade's CCSS.ELA-Literacy.L.3.2c and fourth grade's CCSS.ELA-Literacy.L.4.2b.
