LO: To write using speech marks


Warm-up: Vocab ideas - idioms •   ‘Have mixed feelings’ – Be unsure of how you feel.

Main: Revisit the book ‘The Fossil Girl’ by Catherine Brighton on YouTube.   

Pause the video for some of the speech bubble pictures.  Who says what? How might they say it? (adverb and verb – quietly whispered, muttered softly, shouted loudly…) See the “said” alternative picture help sheet below to help. 

Watch this short video for speech punctuation lesson…

Task:  Write the speech bubble conversations using speech marks for direct speech.  See sheet to convert – YOU choose how many you would like to do.  Read out loud, using different voices.
