6 1. “Are we there yet?” she asked. 2. The Charleston “Cougars” are playing the Cary “Rail Hawks” in soccer tonight. 3. “I am tired,” the boy said and then drifted off to sleep. 4. “We really should be going now,” she said. 5. I received an “incomplete” on my homework because I forgot to write my name on it. ** Notice the commas!!**

7  When you are introducing a quote that a character said, you need to place a comma to introduce the quote. Ex: Romeo mourned his fate and shouted, “I defy you stars!” Ex: Do you know who said, “The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree”?  When a quote is in the beginning or middle of a sentence, set it off with commas. Ex: “Jesus Christ!” George yelled at his friend, “Don’t drink so much water, Lenny!”

8  When a quote ends with a question or exclamation mark, include that punctuation inside the quotation marks. If the sentence is not done, put a period at the end of the sentence. Ex: No one really knows the answer to the old question, “What came first, the chicken or the egg?” Ex: “What came first the chicken or the egg?” is an unanswerable riddle.  When there is a quote within a quote, use ONE apostrophe to indicate the inner quote. Ex: “Mom said, ‘You better clean your rooms tonight or no dessert,’” Macey told her brother.

The president yelled, “We must have peace!” 4. Billy “The Kid” was a famous western gunslinger. *“The Kid” is part of Billy’s name=proper noun* 5. “Jim said, ‘You can leave now,’” Aunt June said. **Notice that the beginning of a quote is capitalized!!**
