7 Rules for using commasIf the quote comes before the speaker tag and tells something, place a comma after the quote, before the closing quotation markExample: "Today we are going to study about the water cycle," the teacher told the class. 2. If the quote comes after the person who spoke and tells something, place the comma after the person who spoke, before the opening quotation mark.Read example sentenceDo a think aloud on identifying signal words and ask self question “ does this passage tell what happens and why it happened”Review non-example: tell students to discuss with partner why this is not a cause and effect passage. Call on a volunteer to share what they discussedAsk a volunteer if they think they know what text structure it is and whyExample: Amber said, "We use water for so many things."

If the quote comes before the speaker tag and asks something or exclaims something , then a question mark or exclamation mark is used in place of the comma.Example "Why don't we ever run out of water?" Sam asked.4. If the quote comes after the speaker tag and uses strong emotion, place the comma after the person who spoke.Example: Mark chirped in, "With evaporation, condensation, and precipitation occurring all the time, we will never run out of water!"
9 Last Rule Promise5. A quote separated by the speaker tag is called a split quotation. Begin the first part of a split quotation with a capital letter, and end with a comma. Place a comma after the person who spoke and begin the second part of a split quotation with a lower case letter. Enclose both parts of the split quotation with quotation marks Example: "Yes class," the teacher explained, "the water cycle provides us with the water we need and it never ends."
