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.
