1 NOVEMBER I can correctly use quotations. I can demonstrate my knowledge of denotation of TONE words. I can use a dictionary to determine the definition. I can demonstrate comprehension of a text. I can make text connections.

2 Quotations Rule #1 Use quotation marks (“ “) to enclose a direct quotation- a person’s exact words. Example: Melanie said, “This car is making a very strange noise.” – Do NOT use quotation marks for indirect quotations. Example: Stephanie said that she was going to wash the car. [The speaker does not quote Stephanie’s exact words.] Always be sure to place quotation marks at both the beginning and the end of the quote. When 2 or more sentences by the same speaker are quoted together, use only one set of quotation marks. – A direct quote begins with a capital letter. Miss Smith answered, “The rest of the chapter, of course.” – When a quoted sentence is divided into 2 parts by an interrupting expression, the second part begins with a small letter. “I wish,” she said, “that we went to the same school.” GRAMMAR
