Do you students misuse quotation marks when trying to add dialogue to their stories? Would you like to teach them the punctuation rules for writing with dialogue? If so, this highly interactive 71-slide PowerPoint may be exactly what you are looking for! It is fully animated. Answers do not appear on the screen until the teacher clicks the mouse.
Three rules are introduced.
1. Quotation marks enclose the words that the character said.
2. Use a tag at the beginning, in the middle, or at the end of the dialogue.
3. Use the correct punctuation for writing dialogue.
It then continues on to teach the punctuation rules.
It concludes with 15 practice dialogue examples. Students are presented with speech bubbles, and they must write a written sentence based on the slide they see.
This file also includes a 4-page PowerPoint companion handout, if you wish to use it! Students will remain especially engaged when they write on their own handout as you advance through the PowerPoint. When complete, they have a valuable tool for future reference! The companion handout is available in both printable format or digital format. The digital version is compatible with Google Slides.
Check out the preview to view the worksheet and several example slides! (But remember, the preview is in a PDF format, and the product is truly an interactive PowerPoint with full animation.)
