Write Dialogue With the Correct Punctuation Marks
Does your child know where to place quotation marks when writing dialogue? You can practice together by writing out a conversation between two characters and punctuating it correctly. Make sure that any ending punctuation, such as a question mark or exclamation point, is kept inside the quotation marks, like this: "When are we leaving?" As an extension activity, have your child write a story that includes several different conversations between the characters.
