Using 'TALKING MARKS' correctly
Using talking marks correctly is something that is difficult for many of us. This video clip goes through the things you need to remember when using them. Make sure you watch and listen carefully so that when you begin your activity you will know exactly what to do!
TASK: You all have a copy of a text message conversation between Auggie and Jack, our characters from 'Wonder'. Obviously with a text message it doesn't have the parts that say.....yelled Fred, or exclaimed Wally. So in this task you need re-write the conversation using talking marks in correct position and adding the information to show who is talking. Remember there are many more exciting words besides SAID! Try to add some interest to your writing.
