Commas and Quotation Marks in Dialogue Worksheets

Related ELA Standard: L.3.2.C

Commas are punctuation marks that create a pause in a sentence. This pause is used to indicate to the reader that a complete is ending and a new one is beginning. Question marks are punctuation that indicates direct speech. The words found within those marks are word-for-word what was said by the speaker. We also capitalize the first letter of a quote, even if it found mid-sentence. Both of these forms of punctuation are vital in written dialogue. Quotation marks are used to help us indicate that a person is speaking and commas add a flare of drama to any statement or query. These worksheets will help students learn the purpose of these forms of punctuation when used in dialogue.
