    Guidance, Quiz, and Links to Digital Resources


    Kids learn to write dialogue with comics. The unit explores direct and indirect quotes, punctuating, capitalizing, and handling tags at the beginning, middle, and end of the sentence. Activities include a slideshow, eight worksheets, and a quiz.

    Created by master teacher Brenda Kovich, these activities are classroom-tested and kid-approved.
