Product Description
Using Commas in Dialogue Practice Activity

In this three part practice activity, students will practice using commas correctly in punctuating dialogue.

Part 1 is a collection of five 8.5 X 11 inches printable informational posters. The posters present information on the correct way to use commas when punctuating dialogue with speaker tags located at the beginning, middle and end of sentences.

Part 2 is a collection of twelve half page activity cards. We have included a space so the “cards” can be cut apart if you wish. These are designed to provide students with thinking practice for understanding how commas are used in punctuating dialogue. Each activity card has a sentence with dialogue. Students are to evaluate each sentence to determine who the speaker is, what the speaker’s exact words are, where the speaker tag is located in the sentence, and where the commas are located. After answering each of these questions, students are asked to use what they have learned through observing the example sentence to write a rule for comma use. We have included a key so students may self-check; however, some answers will vary.

Part 3 is a collection of five story starters. Each story starter sheet has a drawing and writing prompt. In each writing prompt, students are instructed to imagine a conversation that relates to the drawing. In writing the conversation, students will practice using dialogue with an emphasis on using commas correctly.
Please see our preview file for examples of each of the three parts of this activity.
