English

For today's English activity, I would like us to again have a look at inverted commas.

 

Inverted commas are what we use to punctuate speech and make it clear in our writing, that someone is speaking.

 

For example,

 

"I am terrified of that huge, scary house!"

The inverted commas are in red. They have to go at the start of anything said and and at the end of what someone is saying. 

 

Any punctuation has to go inside of the inverted commas, at the end of what they are saying.

 

If someone replies to what is being said, a new line has to be taken.

 

For example,

 

"I am terrified of that huge, scary house!"

"Why would you be scared? It is an adventure!"
