Remember we have been practicing how to correctly write and punctuate dialogue.
We will practice "Said First" on this worksheet.
Remember the pattern?
Here are some examples:
Coughing Fish said, "All Ellerbees are amazing!"
Bear Guarding remarked, "Idioms are weird but interesting."
Falcon asked, "Did you have a fun vacation?"
Notice that the quotation marks are never on top of anything.
So after the said part, there is a comma. Then, AFTER the comma comes the quotation mark.
Also, at the end, the period/exclamation point/question mark come BEFORE the quotation mark. (Think of how the period is inside the speech bubble in a comic, not floating outside the bubble.)
You can print the worksheet below. Or you can just rewrite the sentences on a separate piece of paper.
Name this: Dialogue Practice
This is due on Friday, April 23.
This is a root that means "to see" or "to look."
A word that you are probably familiar with is "vision."
You know that means you see something, right?
So actually seeing something is the easy meaning.
Sometimes it means you are looking and that can be trickier.
For example, the word "revise" has "vis" in it.
But when you are revising you are looking at something you wrote and fixing any mistakes that you made.
LOOK IN YOUR PACKET. IT IS THE SECOND SET I SENT HOME.
In this packet are 2 pages that are titled "Vis"
One page is a picture and example words that use the root.
The other page is your assignment.
Do sections A, B, and C
There are 2 choices for Part C.
You only have to do one of them, but you Do have to do Part C.
Take a picture and email it to me.
The subject line should say "Roots Vis"
This is due Friday, April 23.
What is a ROOT? What does it have to do with language?!
Well, the English language is actually related to two old languages that people spoke long before there even was English! Those two languages are Greek and Latin.
We are going to learn that pieces of those languages still exist in English words.
Usually, these roots are pieces of words. They are not a word all by themselves, but they always carry their meaning with them no matter what word they are in.
Let me give you an example:
Have you ever seen a word with "anti" in it?
Did you know that all these words have something in common? They all mean they are AGAINST something. That is because the meaning of the root "anti" is always "against."
