Wellbeing Task - Give Friday
Give up some time to help someone else
Today's lesson is about speech and using inverted commas. Watch the video below to remind you to use them! Then go through the 4 activities to help practice.
Copy these sentences into your book and put the speech marks in the correct places. Remember: The speech marks go around what is being said. Copy all the other punctuation correctly.
1. Hello, said the man.
2. What are you doing? said Fred.
3. Stop! shouted the policeman.
4. Wait a minute, said Mark. Don’t I know you from somewhere?
5. I know what we’ll do, said Lucy. We’ll go to the pictures.
Put the speech marks in the correct places once again. This time, however, you will also need to add all the other punctuation that is needed as well. Watch out for any questions or exclamations!
1. Hello said Greg
2. You look tired said Martin
3. Can I come in asked the man
4. No screamed the man
5. Come here said Grandma I want to see how much you have grown
6. Is that my bag asked Daniel I thought I’d lost it
7. Run shouted Sally The dog is after us
8. I know what I want for my birthday said Tina A brand new car
How many other words can you think of that you could use instead of the
word said. Write down at least eight other words for said.
For each of the eight words that you came up with in task three write a
sentence with speech in that uses that word.
