Dialogue Punctuation One More Time!

Our Personal Narrative stories are turning out great (code for: much better than I expected!). My budding authors are touching up the dialogue punctuation so it is just right. It took a bit more time to master the quote, comma, quote, quote, comma, exclamation, period but they have it down now. A few fellows even took to acting out their sentences for the class using all of the teachers hand motions for each punctuation mark. At least it shows that they were paying attention...and that I am slightly entertaining. I made up a tidy 10 point Review Quiz that we worked on together in class just to be sure everyone had it mastered and ready to use at a moments notice. Feel free to borrow it to use with your batch of writers. ..xxxxx add link here xxxxx
