Books by the Same Author: Michael Foreman Unit 2 Punctuating Dialogue Ill take you to Mrs Cole. I didnt mean to break the window. Y3: Autumn Term Punctuating Speech Speech bubbles can show us what a character is saying. Ill take you to Mrs Cole.

The words said are called direct speech. said Mum. Ill take you to Mrs Cole, Bubbles take up too much room so we use speech marks. Speech marks work in pairs to hug the direct speech. We report who is speaking using a reporting clause. Unit 2 Day 1 Speech marks are also called inverted commas. Punctuating Speech Mum

Ash I will take you to clean out the bins. I will take you to clean out the bins, said Mum. Id rather go to the zoo, replied Ash. Id rather go to the zoo. Write this conversation as punctuated speech. Remember to hug the direct speech with speech marks and add reporting clauses.

EXAMPLE Punctuating Speech capital letters open direct speech Direct speech begins with a capital letter, even if it is in the middle of a sentence. Mum asked, Why did you flood the bathroom? Ash explained, My battleships hit a huge storm. It is the beginning of the speakers sentence so a capital letter is used. Punctuating Speech commas separate clauses Direct speech and reporting clauses are usually separated by a comma. Remember to lay the table, said Mum. Ash sighed, Ill do it. The comma is placed at the end of the first clause.

The speech marks follow the comma. Punctuating Speech exclamations and questions If the speech ends in a ! or ? we do not need a comma after the speech. Why did you smash the window? asked Mum. Look out! Ash yelled. The punctuation is placed inside the speech marks. The punctuation belongs to the spoken words they tell you how to say them. Punctuating Speech a new line shows a change of speaker Why didnt you lay the table?

I forgot. I was being a pirate. I will take you to Mrs Cole. Not Mrs Cole! Why didnt you lay the table? asked Mum. I forgot. I was being a pirate, said Ash. I will take you to Mrs Cole, warned Mum. Ash groaned, Not Mrs Cole! We show each

change of speaker by starting a new line. This makes it clear when the speaker changes. Punctuating Speech Your Turn I will take you to a spider farm, said Mum. Ash groaned, Id rather go to a sweet shop. I will take you to the Moon, snapped Mum. Id rather go to a fairground, answered Ash.

Write some new dialogue for Mum and Ash. Hug the words spoken with speech marks Start the speakers words with a capital letter Separate the speech and reporting clause with a comma Start a new line to show the speaker has changed
